William (Will) discovered the MIT2 laboratory through Keith R. MacArthur during conversation, and through personal inquest, found there to be similar interests between the area of study of MIT2 and his own interests. He joined the lab in the spring term of 2016. So far, he has been involved in human-robot interaction (HRI) and trust in automation research. In addition of the aforementioned topics he has additional interest in deception, usability, flow states, cognitive and physiological responses, and simulation research. His experiences in the lab and the constant state of learning has led to a desire in continuing research and working towards a Ph.D.
