In This Section
Dr. Tremoulet's current research interests include designing intelligent information systems that use human data (e.g. medical images, vital signs, reaction times, verbal, numerical or abstract reasoning assessments, neurological measures, etc.) to support healthcare and/or to improve job performance by enabling more effective human-machine interaction.
Dr. Tremoulet has more than two decades of experience designing intuitive human machine interfaces for complex, information-intensive systems. She has spearheaded a broad range of advanced human-computer interaction research during her career and co-established the Interaction Design and Engineering for Advanced Systems (IDEAS) process for producing computer systems that optimize human performance.
Dr. Tremoulet has played important leadership roles in several DoD initiatives, including serving as Principal Investigator on the DARPA Augmented Cognition program — an effort that entailed using physiological data to assess individual cognitive state in real-time.
Her research interests include developing intelligent information systems that use human data (e.g. medical images, vital signs, reaction times, verbal, numerical or abstract reasoning assessments, neurological measures, etc.) to support healthcare and/or to improve job performance by enabling more effective human-machine interaction.
She is currently serving as bridge between Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and ECRI Institute, helping foster collaborations while providing Human Factors expertise to both organizations. She is also affiliated with CHOP's Center for Injury Research and Prevention, where she specializes in research focused upon ensuring that children will be able to ride safely in self-driving vehicles.
