Emily Doherty is a PhD student in Computer Science advised by Leanne Hirshfield.
At the SHINE Lab, Emily works primarily with fNIRS data to better understand human workload in different conditions such as human-agent teaming and virtual reality.
She earned her B.S. in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Massachusetts Lowell in 2021.
Her research interests lie in Human-Computer Interaction/Human-Robot Interaction/Non-Invasive Brain Imaging and human-agent teaming. Specifically, the goal of this research is to quantify human workload through non-invasive brain measurement to promote effective teaming.
