Biography Summary

Shi Cao is pronounced like SHER TSAO. Dr. Cao’s major research area is human factors engineering. His research projects include human performance and workload modeling, human-machine system reliability, and the applications of virtual and augmented reality. He has developed cognitive models and human performance simulation systems that can be used to model and predict human performance and other human factors constructs in various work domains such as human-computer interaction, driving, and aerospace. These modeling methods and engineering tools have been adopted by researchers from universities and research institutes worldwide.
