Design School welcomes Dr Enid Montague as Fulbright Scholar.

Joining the Design School as part of the Fulbright Scheme, Enid will be working with with Dr Patrick Waterson and the Human Factors in Complex Systems Research Group until January.

Dr Montague’s research explores the role of trust between people and technologies in healthcare work systems. Her work has examined organisational and design factors that affect both workers and patients, with the overall goal of understanding technology mediated interactions and designing new and effective health technologies.

During the period of her Fulbright scholarship, she will be seeking to understand how technology-mediated healthcare works within the context of the NHS.

Dr Montague is currently an Associate Professor in the School of Computing at DePaul University and adjunct professor at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine. She received MS and PhD degrees in Industrial and Systems Engineering from Virginia Tech, specializing in human factors and ergonomics engineering and human computer interaction.

Her research uses human factors and human-computer interaction methodologies, design principles and theories to understand health care systems to promote safety and patient-centred care.
