We believe in the objective evaluation of information – both research- and case-specific – from both a human factors engineering and a safety and risk management perspective.

“We have a unique ability to not only apply a wide variety of sciences to solve an even broader range of problems, but also to communicate what is, in fact, a very complex process to laypeople – so that they fully understand the reasons behind the results.”

Joellen Gill, president, Applied Cognitive Sciences
