My name is Chris Garneau. I graduated from Penn State University with a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering. As a grad student, I worked in the OPEN Design Lab performing research in Design for Human Variability until I graduated in 2012. I spent time with the U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) Human Research and Engineering Directorate (HRED) from 2012-2019, and I am now with the U.S. Army DEVCOM Analysis Center Human Systems Integration (HSI) Division. This website is a landing page for my publications and other career- or project-related information. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
As part of my career in HSI with the U.S. Army, I have developed and contributed to a variety of design tools to help users apply HSI principles, data, and best practices. Below are YouTube demos I put together for a few of these tools. Find more tools available for HSI analyses from a variety of developers by visiting the HSI Tools Catalog.
The Military Anthropometry Resource Companion (MARC) is a tool for accessing and analyzing anthropometric reference data from U.S. military surveys.
The Job Assessment Software System (JASS) is a mobile app for defining and measuring job aptitudes based on subject matter expert (SME) feedback.
The Behavioral Observations Logging Toolkit (BOLT) is software developed by the U.S. Army to provide a mechanism for data collectors and analysts to facilitate the digital collection and real-time analysis of information to evaluate human-machine interfaces.
