I am an assistant professor in the Integrated Systems Engineering department at the Ohio State University. I hold a BSc and MSc degree in aerospace engineering from the Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands, and a PhD degree in aerospace engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology.
My research focuses on systems engineering for human-machine systems, in which humans and automation/robotic agents work together to create efficient and resilient systems. The challenge of integrating human and technological capabilities in complex and high-risk work environments applies to a wide variety of domains, such as spaceflight operations, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) operations (including Urban Air Mobility), autonomous driving, and many more. My students and I perform research as part of the Cognitive Systems Engineering Lab (CSEL). See the “Research” tab on the CSEL website for an overview of our past and current projects. An overview of my publications can be found here.
I teach courses at various levels in the Department of Integrated Systems Engineering. These courses are open to ISE students and to students from other departments and majors. I encourage anyone who is interested in human-machine systems for complex work environment to sign up for the courses listed here or on the CSEL course page.
I am an active member of the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society.
