Dr. Jeff K. Caird is a professor in the Department of Psychology and an adjunct professor in the Departments of Anesthesia and Community Health Sciences at the University of Calgary. In 1994, he received his PhD in human factors from the University of Minnesota, where he is still an affiliated faculty member of the Center for Cognitive Science.

Dr. William J. Horrey is a senior research scientist in the Center for Behavioral Sciences at the Liberty Mutual Research Institute for Safety. Dr. Horrey earned his Ph.D. in psychology from the University of Illinois in 2005. He has published numerous papers that focus on driver behavior and distractions from in-vehicle devices, including cell phones and visual displays. His more recent work has examined how driver risk perceptions differ from actual hazards as well as the impact of shiftwork and fatigue on driver safety. An active member of the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society, he is the immediate past Chair of the Surface Transportation Technical Group, serves on the Society’s Publications Committee, and is an Associate Editor for the organization’s peer-reviewed journal Human Factors. He recently served as lead Guest Editor on a special issue of the journal Accident Analysis and Prevention on the future directions of fatigue and safety research.

Dr. Lana Trick is a professor in the Neuroscience and Applied Cognitive Science area of the Psychology department at the University of Guelph. She is also the director of the Canadian Foundation for Innovation funded University of Guelph DRIVE lab (Driving Research in Virtual Environments). She received her PhD in cognitive psychology at the University of Western Ontario and does both basic and applied research, investigating how performance changes across the lifespan, from childhood to old age. She has studied both young, inexperienced drivers and older drivers, looking at how performance is affected by challenges such as fog, high traffic density, novel highway designs (roundabouts), and in-vehicle technologies such as cellular phones and navigation systems. She has also done work on hazard warning systems as well as systems designed to use reward to help drivers follow at appropriate distances. Recent work has focused on how driving is influenced by emotions and the social distractions that arise due to other people in the vehicle.
