Congratulations to Acmena Principal Human Factors Consultant, Keryn Pauley, on being invited to guest lecture at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS).

Part of the UTS Masters/Postgraduate course in Engineering Judgement and Decision-Making, Keryn’s lecture, ‘Human Factors and Decision Making – Real World Implications’ leverages her experience both as an academic researcher studying expert decision making, and as an industry professional designing systems to support the end user’s decision making.

Drawing on her 14 years’ experience in providing system design and evaluation, risk assessment and safety management support in the rail, healthcare and aviation industries, Keryn will provide students with real world examples to illustrate not only the effect of biases in decision making and errors, but also how the system often sets up the user to fail. The lecture also details how systems can be better designed to support the user and mitigate error.

“I’m really excited to have the opportunity to present as a guest lecturer,” said Keryn. “The focus of my lecture is going to be real life applications of decision making, risk perception, and risk tolerance research. I’m looking forward to sharing some of my experience with the students and illustrating how some of my earlier research in the aviation and health care domains has influenced my work as a consultant in the rail industry.”
