ACSHF Forum: Timothy Keirnan

The Department of Cognitive and Learning Sciences will host Timothy Keirnan (Humanities) at the next Applied Cognitive Science and Human Factors forum Monday January 22 in Meese 109, from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Join us for a presentation by Timothy Keirnan, a new professor in Humanities with 30 years of experience across the fields of automotive, audio engineering, financial services, and software. From working in recording studios wondering who designed the equipment, to designing the HMI of Ford’s award-winning Pro Power Onboard feature in F150 trucks and Transit vans with a multidisciplinary team of coworkers, Tim has found human factors engineers to be running a parallel course to his career all the way along. In 25 minutes, he will describe his dawning realization of HF as an essential professional discipline to product design and recount some tales from working with its literature and HF engineers at some workplaces. The second 25 minutes will be audience participation to discuss anything in the presentation plus the challenge HF and UX professionals still have in industry to be involved early and often enough on projects.
