The Canfield Lab designs, tests, and models human-centered approaches for big data and autonomous systems. We aim to improve human decision making for complex systems such as energy, transportation, and healthcare.


I am currently recruiting PhD students for funded research assistantships. Please contact me if you are interested in doing research on:

  • Designing human-machine team interfaces to improve human perception and decision-making

  • Evaluating system-level interventions to increase renewable energy adoption in the U.S.

  • Developing methods to quantify non-energy benefits for grid modernization

  • Using social science methods to solve complex technical problems
