I am interested in human attention, multitasking and distraction. I believe that better understanding of the human mind can help us develop intelligent technology and human-technology interactions. My models of drivers' visual sampling on road help to find user interface, driving scenario, as well as individual factors affecting driver distraction in traffic. The results can be utilized for developing distraction warning systems as well as safer in-car user interfaces for the driver.

Kiinnostukseni kohteita ovat tarkkaavuus, tarkkaamattomuus, sekä ihmisen monitehtäväsuorituskyky. Uskon vahvasti, että ymmärtämällä ihmismieltä paremmin kykenemme kehittämään aidosti älykkäämpää teknologiaa sekä ihmisen ja teknologian välistä vuorovaikutusta. Mallini kuljettajan visuaalisesta tiedonhausta ajon aikana auttavat löytämään käyttöliittymä-, ajotilanne-, sekä yksilöllisiä tekijöitä, jotka vaikuttavat tarkkaamattomuuteen liikenteessä. Tuloksia voidaan hyödyntää kuljettajaa tarkkaavaisuudesta muistuttavien järjestelmien sekä turvallisempien kuljettajan käyttöliittymien kehittämisessä.
