Biography

Dr. Shiyan Yang is a Human Factors postdoctoral researcher in the California PATH program at the University of California, Berkeley. He received his Ph.D. degree from the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Texas A&M University, 2016. 

His doctoral training across engineering and science enables him to lead multiple exciting human factors research projects, including developing quantitative metric, measuring mental workload/stress, designing multimodal display, and investigating human reactions to the automated and connected vehicle. Currently, he is conducting human factors research on Cooperative Adaptive Cruise Control (CACC) system in truck platooning with Dr. Steven Shladover.
