Understanding humans and the systems with which we interact
Human Factors Research examines the relationship between humans and the systems with which we interact. By understanding human factors, we aim to optimise human well-being and overall system performances.

Our aims

Human Factors Research examines the relationship between humans and the systems with which we interact. The focus is on understanding dynamics and improving efficiency, effectiveness and productivity with the goal to optimising human well-being and overall system performances.

Understanding human factors is key to improving the well-being and performance of everyone, but is of particular relevance for chronic patients and people working in public service.

Our research

The group’s interests include the vestibular system, motion effects and human task performance, point of regard, and a number of technological developments that intersect with these areas of research, such as wearable technologies, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality and diagnostic tools.
