From Shared Mental Models
Jump to: navigation, search

Catholijn Jonker

Catholjn.jpg I am interested in cognitive processes and concepts such as trust, negotiation, teams of humans, agents, and/or robots, and the dynamics of individual agents and organisations. My goal is to engineer human experience through multi-modal interaction between natural and artificial actors in a social dynamic context. In the context of trust, teams, negotiation, and organisations mental models, and in particular shared mental models are a key factor.

My main research interest is computational modeling of human-related (mostly cognitive) processes, such as attention, emotion, and workload. Such models can be used both for theoretical purposes (to gain a deeper understanding of the processes themselves) and for practical applications, for example, in the domains of ambient intelligence, human factors design, and virtual environments. I am interested in developing shared mental models of processes like attention, emotion, and workload, in particular to investigate whether such models can improve the performance of human-agent teams that have to perform tasks in demanding circumstances.

M. Birna van Riemsdijk

I am interested in techniques for engineering intelligent support systems, i.e., intelligent software systems that can support humans in performing complex tasks. My research hypothesis is that this would work best if human and machine "understand" each other, i.e., if they have a shared mental model of the task, the context, etc. In future research, I would like to find out how this perspective can help in engineering intelligent support systems. In addition, I think that the research results can also be used to improve cooperation between agents in a multi-agent system, i.e., without humans necessarily being involved.

Nanja Smets

I am doing my PhD research in the MECA project (Mission Execution Crew Assistant). The MECA project aims at developing the requirements for a system that empowers the cognitive capacities of human-machine teams during planetary exploration missions in order to cope autonomously with unexpected, complex and potentially hazardous situations (Neerincx et. al, 2006). We specified a theoretical and empirical founded Requirements Baseline (RB) for MECA, and its rationale consisting of scenarios and use cases, user experience claims, and core support functions.

I am interested in: agents, trust, emotion, theory of mind.

Joost Broekens

Joost Broekens received a MSc degree in Computer Science at the University of Delft, The Netherlands, in 2001. In 2007 he received his PhD in computer science at the University of Leiden, The Netherlands, in the area of computational modeling of emotion in relation to learning processes. He has published in the area of computational models of emotion (ranging from theoretical approaches to more applied ones), developed master-level courses and course material on the topic, and has given several invited lectures as well as less formal talks for the larger public related to Affective Computing. His most recent interests include reinforcement learning, affective computing, human-robot and human-computer interaction, and gaming research. He works as a Post doc in the Pocket Negotiator project.

Pia Justen

I am working as an external Phd student of the University of Maastricht at NLR. I received a MSc degree in Work and Organizational Psychology in 2007. My PhD research focus on team performance and communication in air traffic management teams, specifically in air traffic controllers. Being part of the KDC Human Factors Program we aim to anticipate future competences to ensure safe and efficient air traffic management in the future.
