Leonard Adelman, Senior Principal Scientist

Leonard Adelman received the Ph.D. in psychology from the University of Colorado, Boulder, in 1976. He is a tenured, full professor in the Department of Systems Engineering and Operations Research in George Mason University's (GMU) School of Information Technology and Engineering.

Dr. Adelman performs research oriented toward understanding cognitive processes, developing conceptual prototypes to support those processes, and evaluating system effectiveness and usability. He has authored a book on evaluating decision systems, Evaluating Decision Support and Expert Systems (New York: Wiley, 1992), co-authored a book on cognitive systems engineering, Cognitive Systems Engineering for User-Centered Interface Design, Prototyping, and Evaluation, (Hillsdale, NJ: Lawrence Erlbaum, 1995), and co-edited a special issue of IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics ('Perspectives on knowledge engineering,' 1989). In addition, he has authored or co-authored over 60 journal papers, book chapters, and conference proceedings addressing cognitive processes and the design and evaluation of systems to support them. Dr. Adelman's newest, co-authored book is Handbook for Evaluating Knowledge-Based Systems: Conceptual Framework and Compendium of Methods (Norwell, MA: Kluwer, 1997).

Dr. Adelman has worked with CTI on numerous projects since the company's inception. His largest efforts have been in supporting CTI's development of a cognitive framework for situation assessment by Army commanders and staff, and in supporting the training of mental models and critical thinking skills within an Army battlefield context.
