Research Overview

Current research investigates how cognitive design principles can be used to develop predictive models of human-computer interaction applicable to the design of mission-critical and safety-critical mobile systems that support optimal performance in the execution of perceptual-motor tasks without unnecessarily increasing cognitive load and the probability of critical errors. A member of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), Marc has taught computer programming, research methods, and statistics at the University of Hawaii since 2000. His latest publication, An Experimental Study of Field Dependency in Altered Gz Environments, earned a Best Paper Honorable Mention at ACM CHI.
