RESEARCH CENTERS

Laboratory for Information Technology Evaluation

In the Laboratory for Information Technology Evaluation (LITE), researchers study the impact of information technology on people, society, organizations and culture using cutting edge tools and methodologies like virtual reality, eye tracking and electroencephalographic (EEG) activity. Software such as Morae allows researchers to record and analyze human-computer interactions. The lab is led by Drs. Fiona Nah, Richard Hall and Nathan Tyman, renowned information systems and human-computer interaction researchers, and features both undergraduate and graduate student researchers.
