Consultant, Research Scientist, System/Product Developer

Dr. Claudia Ziegler Acemyan is a human factors/human-computer interaction (HCI) researcher and practitioner. Much of her work focuses on user-centered design. Research has shown that many incidents and errors are caused by the design of products, the environments in which they are used, and/or the way that they are used. For this reason, it is essential for human cognitive and physical capabilities and limitations to be taken into account when developing a product or analyzing an incident.

Dr. Acemyan is the Director of Human Factors at Rice University’s Institute for Global Health and an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the Psychological Sciences Department. She has her own consulting business, Post Hoc, LLC, which focuses on human factors, human-computer interaction, and safety. 

Dr. Acemyan completed her Ph.D. in psychology at Rice University where she studied human factors and human-computer interaction. Her education also includes a M.A. in architecture from U.C.L.A., a M. Arch. from Rice University, and B.A. in psychology from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
