Biography

Neil Charness’s research interests in aging began with work on age and expert performance, then shifted to age and skill acquisition as it related to work performance, and now center around age and technology use. In particular, he is interested in performance modeling techniques such as GOMS to help in designing technology products that are suited to older adult abilities. He is also exploring training methods using techniques such as spaced retrieval and self-monitoring judgments of learning to enhance learning of software. Finally, he is investigating some of the factors influencing acceptability and use of in-home vital signs monitoring systems.
