Theory and Methods
Dennis A. Vincenzi received his Doctoral degree in 1998 from the University of Central Florida in Human Factors and Applied Experimental Psychology and has over 20 years of experience as a Human Factors researcher. He has been employed by Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University from 1999 to 2004 where he held the position of Assistant Professor in the Department of Human Factors and Systems in Daytona Beach. In 2004, Dr. Vincenzi left Embry-Riddle to work for the United States Navy as a Senior Human Factors Engineer at the Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division (NAWCTSD) in Orlando, Florida, USA. His duties included performing Human Factors research involving simulation and training system development for a variety of Navy sea and air platforms including the F/A 18 Hornet and Super Hornet, F-35 JSF, Los Angeles, Ohio, and Virginia class submarines, and Littoral Combat Ship (LCS). He was also heavily involved in research involving pilot selection, human performance, and ground control station design for a number of Navy, Marine Corps, and Special Operations Command Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS). Since returning to Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in 2012, Dr. Vincenzi has been involved in research related to UAS and regulatory requirements within the NAS and has been heavily involved in the development of an experimental gesture-based interface used for investigating user preference, usability, and functionality issues related to interface design in virtual environments. Dr. Vincenzi is currently the Program Chair for the Master of Science in Human Factors program at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. Mustapha Mouloua is a Professor of Psychology and the Director of the Transportation Research Group at the University of Central Florida (UCF), Orlando, Florida. He received his PhD (1992) and M.A. (1986) degrees in Applied/Experimental Psychology from the Catholic University of America, Washington, D.C. Before joining the faculty at UCF in 1994, he was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Cognitive Sciences Laboratory of the Catholic University of America from 1992 to1994 where he studied and researched several aspects of human-automation interaction topics sponsored by NASA, and the Office of Naval Research (ONR). He has over 28 years of experience in the teaching, research & development, and evaluation of complex human-machine systems. His research interests include human performance evaluation, human-automation interaction, pilot-alerting systems interaction, automation and workload, pilot training and detection of automation failures, adaptive function allocation and human monitoring of systems, cognition and performance of older pilots, and drivers, simulation technologies, and training in transportation systems. He has over 200 publications and scientific reports published in journals such as Experimental Aging Research, Human Factors, Ergonomics, Perception and Psychophysics, Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perception and Performance, International Journal of Aviation Psychology, Journal of Cognitive Engineering and Decision Making, etc. He was previously the Director of the Applied/Experimental and Human Factors Psychology doctoral program (2008-2017). At UCF, Dr. Mouloua received 8 prestigious Teaching and Research Awards and was inducted into the UCF College of Sciences Millionaire Club for procuring over $1 Million in research funds. He was awarded a UCF "Twenty Years Service" award in 2014, was awarded the UCF International Golden Key and Honorary member status in 2011, and his research was selected to be among the top-30 best published research articles in the last 50 years by the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society in 2008. Peter A. Hancock, D.Sc., Ph.D. is Provost Distinguished Research Professor in the Department of Psychology and the Institute for Simulation and Training, as well as at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and the Department of Industrial Engi
