Ion Juvina, Ph.D. is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology at Wright State University. Prior to his current appointment he conducted postdoctoral and independent research at Carnegie Mellon University working with Niels Taatgen and Christian Lebiere within the ACT-R research group lead by John Anderson. He studied Industrial Psychology in Romania (Master thesis in Human Reliability) and Information Science in the Netherlands (Ph.D. dissertation in Human-Computer Interaction). See lab website here:
