by field

Empirical aesthetics
Empirical aesthetics is a research area at the intersection of psychology and neuroscience that investigates how people experience and evaluate objects such as paintings, music, movies, brands and websites.
Behavioral science
Behavioral science is an interdisciplinary field that ranges across psychology, neurology, sociology, and economics, and studies how people make decisions, how they interact, what actions they take, and how their personal thoughts change as the stimuli they receive change.

by application

Web and UI design
Evaluate the user judgment of appeal, trust, and usability due to the choice of a given layout, visual complexity, prototypicality (how much the website evokes sites in the same category), and how judgment changes while exploring the site or app.
Brand definition
Understand what specific characteristics are evoked by colors and shapes (in the logo), and sounds (in the brand name); how they interact together in creating judgment of brand character, and how judgment changes in different cultures.
Graphic and sound design
Design graphics and sounds based on understanding how users judge and experience certain shapes, colors, sounds, their preferences among different classes of objects, specific effects of perception, and how stimuli interact.
Workflow modeling
Define behavioral and workflow models for teams and communities by understanding the effect of behaviors and specific non-verbal and non-content stimuli in each individual context, to avoid misinterpretation, anxiety, and conflict situations.
