President: Joe Keebler



Joseph R. Keebler is a Graduate Research Assistant for Team Performance Laboratory. His interests include Human Robot Interaction, Training, Perception and Cognition, Neuroergonomics, and Research Methods and Design. His main research at Team Performance Laboratory investigates how teams interact with multiple robotic assets in a 1:35 scale simulation. Joe also collaborates frequently with ACTIVE lab on object recognition studies, with a focus on cognitive explanations for misidentification. Joe hopes to help the UCF student chapter achieve gold recognition status with the national society this year, and to bring social and professional activity of the chapter to an all time high.






Vice President: Carrie Murphy


Carrie E. Murphy is a Graduate Teaching Associate and Research Assistant who began the AEHF program in 2004 after graduating from Northern Kentucky University with a B.S. in Psychology. Her research interests include metacognition and learning, in particular the active process of navigating a physical space and our memory for three dimensional space. She teaches Perception and works as a research assistant on projects involving online learning, internationalization, educational technology and professional development at the Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning.

Treasurer: Heather Lum


Heather Lum is a 3rd year doctoral student in the Applied Experimental & Human Factors program. Her research interests include two main categories; human-animal and human-robot interactions as well as team cognition and training. In particular, she has focused recently on anthropomorphism, perceptions of animals and robots, animal training, and cruelty practices in the ACAT lab. In the MURI lab, her research includes physiological measures such as eye tracking and vocal analysis as another means to study team cognition and interaction.

Secretary: Katie Del Giudice



Katherine Del Giudice is a fourth year doctoral student in the Applied Psychology and Human Factors program at UCF. She currently works under Dr. Clint Bowers with the ACTIVE lab at UCF’s Institute for Simulation and Training and conducts research on multi-user tabletop computing systems, collaborative learning, and the use of games for training and learning. In her spare time she enjoys building websites, watching anime, and spending too much time on the Internet.
