In this field, we do research and teaching on distributed and situated cognition, cognitive ethnography, learning technologies, and design cognition.

We also do research on artificial intelligence including knowledge representation, machine learning, and natural language processing.

In cognitive systems, we cover human factors, cognitive ergonomics, man-machine interaction as well as command and control, emergency and disaster management, safety management, and resilience engineering.
