Patrice D. Tremoulet

Human Factors Scientist
ECRI Institute
Dr. Patrice Tremoulet is a Human Factors Scientist with over two decades of experience designing intuitive human machine interfaces for complex, information-intensive systems of systems. She has spearheaded a broad range of advanced human-computer interaction research for enhanced human cognitive and collaborative activities at AT&T, Lucent Bell Laboratories, Rutgers University, Lockheed Martin, and Drexel University. At Lockheed Martin, she established the Interaction Design and Engineering for Advanced Systems (IDEAS) process for producing computer systems that optimize human performance. Dr. Tremoulet has played important leadership roles in several DoD initiatives, including serving as Principal Investigator on the DARPA Augmented Cognition program — an effort that entailed using physiological data to assess individual cognitive state in real-time. Her current research interests include developing intelligent information systems that use human data (e.g. medical images, vital signs, reaction times, verbal, numerical or abstract reasoning assessments, neurological measures, etc.) to support healthcare and/or to improve job performance by enabling more effective human-machine interaction. Dr. Tremoulet received her Ph.D. in Psychology and a certificate in Cognitive Science from Rutgers University, an M.S. in Operations Research from Stanford University and a B.S.E. in Operations Research and a certificate in Engineering Management Systems from Princeton University. She is currently serving as bridge between Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and ECRI Institute, helping foster collaborations while providing Human Factors expertise to both organizations. At ECRI, she is helping the Healthcare Devices division add usability assessments to their product evaluations, and at CHOP she is helping the Center for Simulation, Advanced Training, and Innovation design and conduct usability tests of both commercial technologies and research prototypes.
