My research reveals implicit cognitive processes that can be used to help designers develop intuitive interfaces. The PoD lab is currently developing models to predict eye movements within interfaces. Helping designers guide users effectively through interfaces. We are also improving and inventing usable authentication methods. Making logging into a system easier and safer by designing interactions that exploit users' natural cognitive abilities.
