- Dr. James Christensen is the portfolio manager for Airman Sensing and Assessment, Warfighter Interface Division, Air Force Research Laboratory. He received his B.S. from the University of Michigan in biopsychology and his PhD from Ohio State University in cognitive psychology. His work for the Air Force has focused on the neuroscientific assessment of cognitive function, with a particular interest in real-time workload estimation, trust, and adaptive performance augmentation. This work has heavily involved the application of machine learning approaches to large, complex, real-world data sets generated by multiple sensors such as EEG, ECG, and eye tracking. His current research interests include applying the results of previous successful projects to address trust in automation, operational workload, and credibility assessment. Dr. Christensen is one of the Air Force technical experts in neuroscience, and is proud to have been part of the 2014 SAM team.
