Alan Hedge is a Professor in the Department of Design and Environmental Analysis at Cornell University.
His research and teaching activities focus on issues of design and workplace ergonomics as these affect the health, comfort and productivity of workers.
His research themes include workstation design, computer ergonomics and carpal tunnel syndrome risk factors for workers, alternative keyboard and input system designs, the performance and health effects of postural strain, and the health and comfort impacts of various environmental stressors.
His professional activities are so extensive that if I named them all, it would probably take up this whole episode.
He is perhaps the most often cited ergonomist in the media and I’m grateful to call him my friend and mentor.
