Dr. Brumby’s research lies at the intersection of human-computer interaction and cognitive science. He has investigated problems associated with in-car multitasking, how people manage and recover from interruptions, and how people search for information on the web. This work has been published in leading journals and conference proceedings, including Human-Computer Interaction, Cognitive Science, Journal of Experimental Psychology: Applied, Human Factors, and the Proceedings of the ACM SIGCHI conference. His work on multitasking has received best paper awards at the ACM SIGCHI conference (2007, 2012), and his work on interactive search is one of the most-cited articles from the Human-Computer Interaction journal 2008-2010.
