    Research Scientist
  Research Scientist Anil Raj received his M.D. from the University of Michigan School of Medicine in 1990. His interests in aerospace medicine research led him to the Naval Aerospace Medical Research Laboratory in Pensacola, FL, following a two year fellowship as a National Research Council Resident Research Associate at the NASA-Johnson Space Center, Houston, TX. Dr. Raj's interests focus around the human physiologic and psychological responses to accelerative forces, particularly how changes in acceleration affect the sense of spatial orientation. He has been involved with the development, test and evaluation phases of the US Navy/NASA's Tactile Situation Awareness System. Since joining the Institute for Human and Machine Cognition in 1996, Dr. Raj has been involved with the development of human centered interfaces and the development of automated systems for tracking and analyzing human response characteristics in dynamic environments.
