Wayne Gray

HFES Fellow and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute Professor Wayne Gray has been awarded a Humboldt Research Award from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, based in Germany. The honor includes a fellowship that will enable Gray, a professor in the Department of Cognitive Science and director of the CogWorks Laboratory, to pursue research at the Max Planck Institute Center for Adaptive Behavior and Cognition (ABC) in Berlin.

The Humboldt Research Award is granted in recognition of the achievements of a researcher whose fundamental discoveries, new theories, or insights have had a significant impact on their own discipline and who are expected to continue producing cutting-edge achievements in the future.

Gray also holds fellow honors with the Cognitive Science Society and the American Psychological Association (APA). In 2008, APA awarded him the Franklin V. Taylor Award for Outstanding Contributions in the Field of Applied Experimental and Engineering Psychology. He is a past chair of the Cognitive Science Society and the founding chair of the HFES Human Performance Modeling Technical Group. He may be reached at
