Academic Areas: Human Factors, Human Behavior Modeling, Human Computer Interaction
Yan was focused on human behavior modeling in complex space system. Various interactive technology are evaluated in complex space system and kinds of design proposals are given to those systems concerning about appropriate H-M interaction. Yan also made outstanding contributions to China. Fu also maintained continuous interests on ergonomic study on handicapped work system. She proposed several evaluation methods on work capacity of the handicapped.
With “Human centered Design ”in mind, Fu, with her group constantly pursue issues on human behavior modeling, either cognitive or physical, to achieve a goal that all human-machine system is of best fit.
