Research Interests: Awards:

Historically, we investigated four lines of research within Cognitive Design: affordance versus convention based interactions, intuitive interactions, perception without awareness: nudging, and how to describe visual saliency in complex displays (see research archive).

Currently, we are focusing on making cyber security systems healthier by improving the user experience!
