Gary L Klein received his BA in Psychology and his PhD in Cognitive Social Psychology. He is a Senior Principal Scientist in cognitive science and artificial intelligence at The MITRE Corporation, where he has worked for nearly 30 years, focusing primarily on how people acquire and use information in domains including emergency response, air traffic management, and intelligence analysis. He has led projects about using forecasting models that generate graphical depictions of decision spaces to improve decision makers’ “option awareness” under deep uncertainty, designing a Collaborative Option Awareness for Joint Actions, or COAction, process, to provide emergency responders with something beyond situation awareness, and generating a framework for evaluating collaboration. In 2015, Gary and MITRE served as hosts for the 12th International NDM Conference.
