Biography

Douglas J. Gillan is a Professor and Head of the Department of Psychology at North Carolina State University in Raleigh, NC.  He is a Fellow of the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society and Associate Editor of Human Factors.  Gillan received a B.A. in Psychology from Macalester College (St. Paul, MN) in 1974 and a Ph.D. in Biopsychology from the University of Texas at Austin in 1978.  He was an NSF Postdoctoral Fellow at Yale University and a Sloan Foundation Cognitive Science Fellow at University of Pennsylvania.  He worked for 10 years in industry at General Foods Research Center and Lockheed Engineering and Sciences at NASA-JSC, followed by positions in academia at the University of Idaho, and New Mexico State University.  His research interests focus broadly on the interaction between humans and technology.  He has investigated issues in human-computer interaction and human-robot interaction.  Much of his research has centered around the cognitive and perceptual processes that underlie comprehension of graphical and numerical displays of information.  In addition, he has published extensively on the relation between science and practice in human factors.  The National Science Foundation and the Army Research Laboratory have funded his research.
