The Visualization and Usability Group is located in the Information Access Division of the Information Technology Laboratory. The Group performs research to develop user-centered measurement and evaluation methods, guidelines, and standards by applying human factors, cognitive science, user-centered design, and usability principles to improve human system interaction. We are a diverse group of human factors engineers and computer scientists.
Using a human-centered design approach, we develop and design systems to make these interactive systems more usable. We focus on the user of the system and apply human factors, usability knowledge and usability techniques.
