Biography:Daniel Carruth is an Assistant Research Professor in the Human Factors and Ergonomics research group. He earned his PhD in the Applied Cognitive Science program in the Psychology Department at MSU in Summer 2008. Dr. Carruth leads a number of projects in the Driving Simulation Lab and the Human Performance Lab.

Research Interest: Daniel Carruth is interested in human perception, cognition and action in the context of real-world whole body tasks. Dr. Carruth\'s research interests currently include investigations of cognitive and physical factors impacting human performance in athletic, law enforcement and military domains. Dr. Carruth works with digital human models and develops and uses virtual environments for simulation and training.
