My Vita (.pdf)
Dr. Still

I am investigating several lines of research including developing intuitive designs, predicting attention within Ecommerce interfaces, and using AI to improve cyber hygiene. My PoD lab's goal is to contribute to theory and produce designs that make our lives easier and safer by exploiting users' natural cognitive abilities.
