On September 24th, Pamela D’Addario will sit on the 2020 HFIG Industry Panel, a panel of professionals in human factors, user experience and related fields assembled by the University of Toronto’s Human Factors Interest Group. The panelists will share their career experience, discuss the state of the industry, and take questions from the audience. This is a free, virtual event for students of the University of Toronto.
Our senior engineer and human factors expert Pamela will sit on the panel alongside UX Researcher and analyst Dandi Feng, Lead, Safety at the Healthcare Insurance Reciprocal of Canada Stefano Gelmi, and Dr. Ming Hou, Senior Defence Scientist at Defence Research and Development Canada. They are giving UofT students the opportunity to learn first hand what it’s like to work in Human Factors and similar fields, and ask questions to a group of experienced and approachable professionals.
