Join us for a Talk on Human Factors with Chris Wickens, Affiliate Professor, Colorado State University

Chris Wickens, PhD, is an affiliate professor at Colorado State University whose areas of specialization include: applied cognition, attention, decision making, and human factors. Chris Wickens is an internationally recognized researcher in the fields of psychology and human factors. His work intersects the study of human attention while performing complex tasks and the study of how automation can support the behaviors of operators in high-risk systems. As a result of his research, he has developed two theories or models of attention: multiple resources theory developed in the early 1980s; and Salience, Effort, Expectancy and Value (SEEV) theory elaborating the selective aspects of attention in the late 1990s and early 2000s. Chris Wickens will be giving a talk at this Friday's (11/13/20) joint Immersive Experiences and Social Informatics meeting. The meeting will be held at 1 pm via zoom.
