Professor Jan Noyes


My academic, professional qualifications and research interests are in Applied Psychology, and more specifically, Human Factors Psychology/Cognitive Ergonomics and the design of human-machine systems and technologies from a user perspective. In 1987, I was part of a group of young researchers to be presented with the Sir Frederic Bartlett Medal for individuals who have made ?significant contributions to Ergonomics?. In 1999, I was awarded the prestigious Otto Edholm award for contributions to ?applied research in Ergonomics?, and the previous year, I was awarded the IEE Informatics Premium award for the best journal paper ? this was the top award possible in the Informatics Division. The applied nature of my research means that I have worked extensively with industry. Examples include: British Airways, GE Aviation, the railways, Rolls-Royce, and Hewlett-Packard. I have also had government funding from GCHQ and the Home Office.
