Biography

Professor & Graduate Program Chair, Human Systems Engineering, The Polytechnic School, Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering

Nancy J. Cooke is a professor of Human Systems Engineering at Arizona State University and is Science Director of the Cognitive Engineering Research Institute in Mesa, AZ.  She received her PhD in Cognitive Psychology from New Mexico State University in 1987.  Dr. Cooke is currently President of the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society and the recent past chair of the Board on Human Systems Integration at the National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine. She also recently chaired a study panel for the National Academies on the Enhancing the Effectiveness of Team Science. Dr. Cooke was a member of the US Air Force Scientific Advisory board from 2008-2012.   In 2014 Dr. Cooke received the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society’s Arnold M. Small President’s Distinguished Service Award that recognizes individuals whose career-long contributions have brought honor to the profession and the Society. Dr. Cooke’s research interests include the study of individual and team cognition and its application to the development of cognitive and knowledge engineering methodologies, sensor operator threat detection cyber and intelligence analysis, remotely-piloted aircraft systems, human-robot interaction, healthcare systems, and emergency response systems. Dr. Cooke specializes in the development, application, and evaluation of methodologies to elicit and assess individual and team cognition.

Nancy Cooke's research interests include the study of individual and team cognition and its application to the development of cognitive and knowledge engineering methodologies, healthcare, homeland security systems, remotely-piloted aircraft, and emergency response systems. In particular, Dr. Cooke specializes in the development, application, and evaluation of methodologies to elicit and assess individual and team cognition (i.e., team situation awareness, coordination) and performance.  Her most recent work includes empirical and modeling efforts to understand and predict the acquisition and retention of team skill and the measurement of team coordination and team situation awareness especially through the analysis and modeling of team communication.  Recent communication analysis work has included analysis of communication in Air Operations Center chat rooms, the Enron email corpus, and experimental command-and-control and planning tasks using voice and chat.  This work is funded primarily by the Air Force Research Laboratory and the Office of Naval Research and has been published in journal articles and book chapters.
