Group leader, Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics
Dr. Chuang leads the research group “Cognition and Control for Human-Machine Systems” at the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics in Tuebingen, Germany. He is also a principal investigator with the SFB-DFG transregional research center for “Quantitative Methods for Visual Computing” (http://trr161.de). Lewis Chuang read Psychology at the universities of York and Manchester, UK. In 2011, he was awarded a doctorate in Neuroscience by the Eberhard Karls Universität Tübingen, Germany. He researches how humans attend to task-relevant (and -irrelevant) information, whilst interacting with closed-loop machine systems (e.g., driving a car). To achieve this, he employs unobtrusive methods of user observation, such as mobile gaze-tracking and neuroimaging. His previous projects include “myCopter-Enabling technologies for personalized aerial vehicles (http://mycopter.eu)’’ and “Interactive Visualizations for Gigapixel Displays (http://graphics.uni-konstanz.de/bw-fit/ziele.php)’’.
