  • Human–computer interaction (8.25%)
  • Engineering design process (24.75%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Jonathan Cagan mainly investigates Artificial intelligence, Human–computer interaction, Engineering design process, Mathematical optimization and Heuristic. His Artificial intelligence research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Machine learning and Grammar. His Human–computer interaction research incorporates themes from Test, Differential game, Task and Mechanism.

His study in Engineering design process is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Design strategy, Engineering management, Configuration design, Transfer of learning and Conceptual design. His Mathematical optimization research focuses on Stackelberg competition and how it relates to Adversarial system. His work carried out in the field of Learning curve brings together such families of science as Shape grammar and Rule-based machine translation.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A neuroimaging investigation of design ideation with and without inspirational stimuli—understanding the meaning of near and far stimuli (27 citations)
  • Crowdsourcing inspiration: Using crowd generated inspirational stimuli to support designer ideation (23 citations)
  • Learning to Design From Humans: Imitating Human Designers Through Deep Learning (16 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Artificial intelligence
  • Statistics
  • Programming language

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Engineering design process, Human–computer interaction, Artificial intelligence, Neuroimaging and Conceptual design. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Domain, Design strategy, Engineering management, Transfer of learning and Process management. The Human–computer interaction study combines topics in areas such as Crowdsourcing, Test, Interface and Mechanism.

When carried out as part of a general Artificial intelligence research project, his work on Learning classifier system is frequently linked to work in Computational design, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. His Neuroimaging research spans across into subjects like Cognitive science, Cognitive psychology, Meaning, Problem space and Brain activation. His research in Conceptual design intersects with topics in Configuration design, Management science, Process and Diversity.
