Bio
Lauren Reinerman-Jones completed her Ph.D. in Human Factors Psychology from the University of Cincinnati (UC), focusing on selecting and predicting personnel for vigilance tasks. Simultaneously, she was an Adjunct Professor at UC and contributed to research at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. She is now the Director of Prodigy at the University of Central Florida’s Institute for Simulation and Training where she has extensive experience working with ARL, NRC, ONR, NAWCTSD, AFOSR, ETS, DoT, Florida Hospital, and the John Templeton Foundation. Her research centers on interdisciplinary collaborations using physiological measures (EEG, ECG, TCD, fNIR, and eye tracking) for resilience, human-robot interaction, decision making, socio-cultural team dynamics, automation, virtual to live environment comparisons, and the assessment of emotional and cognitive states. She is adept in evaluating and developing measures, particularly for workload, situation awareness, teamwork, and real-time physiological logging. Among other programs, she is the Principal Investigator for the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) Human Performance Test Facility and delivered a decision making tool in use by NRC regulators, and the tool under evaluation for integration in NUREG-0711, the regulatory guide for licensing nuclear power plants. Lauren is also Founder and CEO of DUJO. DUJO unlocks clutch performance using cutting-edge science for skill assessment and improvement. Lauren has over 100 publications and presentations internationally in the fields of Psychology, Engineering, Philosophy, and Business. She has acted as a reviewer for many journals, conferences, technical reports, ARL proposals, and ONR program reviews. She serves on the editorial board of Theoretical Issues in Ergonomics Science (TIES), the program board for Augmented Cognition International for the Human Computer Interaction International (HCII) Conference, and the program board for Human Factors for Oil, Gas, and Nuclear Industries for Applied Human Factors and Ergonomics (AHFE) Conference. Previously she served on the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society (HFES) Board of Executive Officers, as the HFES Augmented Cognition Technical Group Chair, and as the HFES Augmented Cognition Technical Group Program Chair. She was a finalist for the “Orlando Business Woman of the Year 2010” award.
