About Dr. Missie Smith:

My research in perception, performance, mental workload, and preference is built on the hypothesis that the integration of new technologies into dynamic environments has long-term implications on human performance and safety that are both positive and negative. Additionally, individual trust plays a critical role in new technology acceptance and large-scale adoption. My work has application in a variety of dynamic and safety-critical settings such as the automotive and healthcare industries.

Research Interests:

- Novel displays’ impact on performance/perception- Dynamic, safety-critical, and complex systems- Technology trust and acceptance- Human subjects experiments, experimental design, statistics
