Tal Oron-Gilad is a full professor in the Department of Industrial Engineering and Management at Ben-Gurion University, and the Vice dean of research at the Faculty of Engineering Sciences, and the George Shrut Chair of human performance. She received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in industrial engineering from the Technion in 1992 and 1997, respectively, and the Ph.D. degree in human factors engineering in 2003 from Ben-Gurion University. She was a research associate at the Institute for Simulation and Training at the University of Central Florida before returning to Ben-Gurion University as faculty in 2006. Between 2015-2020 she was the chair of the department. Tal's research expertise is in human factors engineering, human-autonomy interaction, and decision support systems for command and control. As systems become more intelligent and autonomous, the challenge of designing the interaction increases, and more emphasis is required on mutual understanding and shared communication. Tal is the author of numerous articles and conference presentations and has supervised many graduate students. Her research was continuously funded by the US Army Research Lab, General Motors, the Israeli Ministry of Science, the Israeli Innovative authority. She is a member of several EU projects and initiatives (SOCRATES, MEDIATOR and RESIST).
