John D. Lee

John D. Lee is the Emerson Electric professor in the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, and director of the Cognitive Systems Laboratory. Previously he was a professor at the University of Iowa and director of human factors research at the National Advanced Driving Simulator. He is a coauthor of the textbook An Introduction to Human Factors Engineering and is the author or coauthor of over 170 articles. He recently helped edit The Oxford Handbook of Cognitive Engineering. He has served on the National Academy of Sciences Committee on Human System Integration, the Committee on Electronic Vehicle Controls and Unintended Acceleration, and several other committees. His research focuses on the safety and acceptance of complex human-machine systems by considering how technology mediates attention. He now serves on the editorial board of Cognitive Engineering and Decision Making; Cognition, Technology and Work; and the International Journal of Human Factors Modeling and Simulation, and is the associate editor for the journals Human Factors and IEEE-Systems, Man, and Cybernetics. He received the Ely Award for best paper in the journal Human Factors (2002) and the best paper award for the journal Ergonomics (2005). Specific research interests include trust in technology, advanced driver assistance systems, and human interaction with mixed-initiative systems.

Alex Kirlik

Alex Kirlik is professor in the Departments of Computer Science, Psychology, and Systems Engineering and a member of the Beckman Institute at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He previously served as Coordinator of Cognitive Science Academic Programs at Georgia Institute of Technology and as Head of Human Factors at Illinois. He is the editor of Adaptive Perspectives on Human-Technology Interaction (Oxford, 2006), co-editor of Attention: From Theory to Practice (Oxford, 2008), and editor of Human-Tech (Oxford, 2011). His engineering research focuses on the design of collaborative human-technology systems to leverage mathematical models and human expertise in cognitive tasks such as judgment, prediction, diagnosis, and decision making. He is a member of the editorial boards of the journals Human Factors and Cognitive Engineering and Decision Making and has served as editor of the Oxford Series in Human-Technology Interaction since its inception in 2006.
