Lene Harbott, Research Associate
Lene has been at Stanford University since 2006, using electroencephalography (EEG) to investigate how brain activity is related to a person’s external environment. She is currently working with Professor Chris Gerdes to investigate driver’s physiological responses while interacting with a vehicle in a variety of different driving conditions. In this way Harbott is excited to be able to apply her extensive knowledge of neurophysiology to her love of cars, inherited from her automotive-fanatic father and grandfather. Growing up near the village of Silverstone (home of the British Grand Prix circuit) she spent her formative years watching both modern and classic car races and is thrilled to have the opportunity to work with some of the world’s most beautiful classic cars, as well as vehicles at the cutting edge of automotive innovation.
