About Me

Anjum Naweed is an Associate Professor at the Appleton Institute for Behavioural Science in South Australia. He is a Certified Professional Ergonomist with a background in psychology and expertise in human factors and systems thinking. He has over 15 years of experience across a range of industry sectors, complex domains, and occupational settings.

Anjum has a keen interest in the relationships between people, technologies, tools and environments and understanding the way people perform in complex systems. His academic research has sought to advance theories of applied attention and develop new techniques for describing and understanding human performance. Anjum's proclivity for creative methods and focus on practical translation of his research has helped him secure strong collaborations and lasting partnerships with organisations and peak industry bodies across the transport and health sectors.  

Anjum has co-edited books, written over 150 peer reviewed articles and obtained close to $5 million in research funding. He currently serves a Scientific Editor for Applied Ergonomics and has been a Scientific Convenor for the Australasian Simulation Congress on five consecutive occasions, Chair of the Transport community for the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society of Australia, and Scientific Advisor for the Australasian Centre for Rail innovation.

Anjum has received numerous best paper awards and a series of impressive accolades in recognition of his research contribution. In 2012, he was awarded the Body of Knowledge prize from Simulation Australasia for best contribution to standards development, capture of best practice, or contribution to the simulation community. In 2013 he was awarded the CQU Opal Award for Excellence in Engagement, and the CQU Vice-Chancellor’s award for Outstanding Researcher of the Year for a researcher in their early career. In 2014, Anjum received the Alan Welford Award from the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society of Australia, and in 2015, their John Lane Award for a major systematic contribution to advancing the science of human factors and ergonomics and its application. In 2017, he received the Best Overall Paper award at the 2nd Australasian Simulation Congress, and in the same year, the Ken Provins Award for the best paper and presentation delivered at the 52nd Annual Conference of the Human Factors & Ergonomics Society of Australia. In 2018, Anjum was awarded the Vice-Chancellor's Award for Outstanding Researchers a second time, and the Dean's Outstanding Research Award from the School of Health, Medical and Applied Sciences, both in recognition of excellence in research activity, publication and engagement for a researcher in their mid-career. In 2019, Anjum received the CQU Opal Award for Excellence in Engagement for a second time again, and in 2021, the Augusta Zadow Award from SafeWork SA. 

Anjum’s research interests include complex decision-making and knowledge representation in skilled work, transport human factors, accident analysis and prevention, collision avoidance, story-telling and narrative, creative and cultural applications of simulation, serious games & gaming concepts, esports, impact of new technology, and safety science. He loves anything to do with rail human factors. 

General
Background

Anjum Naweed obtained a BSc in Psychology at the University of Wolverhampton (UK) in 2002 under the supervision of Professor Ken Manktelow. In 2005. he gained an MSc in Psychological Research Methods from the University of Plymouth (UK), with his thesis completed under the supervision of Professor Judy Edworthy. Both of his theses used a driving simulator to explore the influence of auditory feedback on speed choice, violations and perceived comfort.

Following his Masters, Anjum spent a year in Plymouth as a research scientist exploring alarm confusability in freight and passenger rail operations. In 2005 Anjum commended at PhD in Psychology (Human Factors) at Sheffield University (UK) under the supervision of Professor Bob Hockey. His work explored enhanced information design in train displays and features strong experimental and qualitative components. In 2010, he relocated to a Australia to work as a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow in the Centre for Sleep Research at the University of South Australia (UNiSA) and in the following year, obtained his PhD conferral.

In 2012, Anjum moved with most of his Centre colleagues to a newly established Adelaide-based campus for CQUniversity: the Appleton Institute for Behavioural Science. Anjum is now an Associate Professor and his research focus and curiosity remains centred around people and systems and on optimising wellbeing and performance. He has used a broad range of quantitative, qualitative and mixed methodologies over the course of his work and created new techniques to pursue theoretical and practical advances.
