Benjamin Patranella is a master’s student with the Industrial and Systems Engineering Department and works in the Applied Cognitive Ergonomics Laboratory as a student researcher. He is currently working on the lab’s UAV C2 test bed investigating the utility of an Interruption Recovery Assistance tool. Previously, he has worked with law enforcement in-vehicle to better understand the workload, and therefore distraction, involved with their mobile computer terminals. His general interest is to better mold technology to human biology and psychology, rather than mold humans to technology as is so often seen.
