Current Officers

Grace Waldfogle is the President of the UCF HFES Student Chapter. Her research interests include training for vigilance as well as how individual differences contribute to variations in performance. When Grace is not working in the lab, you find her laying on the nearest couch binge watching Netflix and looking at the WeRateDogs (@Dog_Rates) twitter.

Eva Parkhurst is the UCF HFES Student Chapter Vice President. In addition to her work on aging and robotics, she is also an expert in the care and raising of gray cats.

Allison Garibaldi is the Social Chair of the UCF HFES student chapter. She is interested in the affective and motivational components of human performance and technology use. In her free time, she watches copious amounts of YouTube and sinks ever deeper into the Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones fandom.

Briana Sobel is the Treasurer of the HFES Student Chapter. Her research interests include anthropomorphism of computer interfaces and perceptions of media affordances. Her personal interests include dogs, puns, and contemplating the inevitable heat death of the universe.

Gabby is the secretary for the HFES Student Chapter and a student in the Modeling and Simulation M.S program. Her research interests are in augmented cognition, system transparency, and human-robot/ human-automation teams. When she’s not in the lab, you can find her snuggling with her cats whist contemplating her life choices and head-butting dogs (not all at the same time).  She also holds the (personal) record of consuming an entire burrito bowl from Chipotle in 4 minutes.

Xiaoqing Wan is the Webmaster of the UCF HFES Student Chapter. She is interested in judgment, decision making, memory, and behavioral economics. When she’s not in the lab, she enjoys going to the movies and hanging out with her husband.
