Dr. Kondraske is Professor of Electrical and Biomedical Engineering at the University of Texas at Arlington and founding director of the Human Performance Institute. He also holds academic appointments at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas and Texas Woman's University. Since receiving his doctorate, he has conducted human and systems performance research sponsored by NIDRR, NSF, NASA, DOE, USAF, NIH, the Veterans Administration, the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, as well as a number of other agencies and industrial firms. He is widely recognized for his work in human performance modeling and measurement. Key contributions include the development of a Human Performance Capacity Measurement System (now commercially available and in use in nine countries), General Systems Performance Theory, and the Elemental Resource Model for human performance. He has applied these tools to problems in medical rehabilitation, ergonomics, sports, music, information technology based training systems and other areas. He has authored over 200 publications on these topics. In 1986, he was awarded the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) "Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society Early Career Award" and received the Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation Career Achievement Award in 1989. He was also elected a Fellow of the IEEE with a citation "for contributions to the quantitative understanding of human performance through modeling and the development of instrumentation".
