The Human Factors Research Laboratory is located on the 1st floor of Sewall Hall in room 121.

These labs contain a variety of tools that allow us to prototype visual and auditory interfaces and space to run experiments evalauating these interfaces. Much of the research in my lab takes place in the field, and so extensive facilites are not always required.
