• Yusuke Yamani is an Assistant Professor of Psychology at Old Dominion University. He received the B.A. degrees in Psychology and Philosophy from the State University of New York at Geneseo, 2008, the M.S. degree in Human Factors from Institute of Aviation, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2010, and the Ph.D. degree in Psychology from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2013. He completed his postdoctoral research at University of Massachusetts Amherst and Liberty Mutual Research Institute for Safety, Hopkinton, MA. His research program focuses on basic and applied aspects of attention, perception and cognition. His current research focuses on 1) young and older drivers' allocation of visual attention and 2) human-automation trust and interaction.
