Show Description:

We’re pleased to be talking today with Joel Suss. Joel is Assistant Professor of Human Factors in the Department of Psychology at Wichita State University. His research work focus on understanding and improving perceptual-cognitive performance – in particular, anticipation, decision making -- in complex and challenging operational settings, such as law enforcement, security, military command and control, aviation, and emergency medicine. He has examined perceptual and cognitive aspects of CCTV monitoring and how automated, intelligent videos surveillance systems are changing the human operator’s role in security surveillance. Joel is perhaps best known known for his work investigating ways to train police officers to make better decision in stressful situations. Originally from Australia, Joel completed his PhD in Applied Cognitive Science and Human Factors at the Michigan Technological University.
