Assistant Professor

Research Interests: (a) the perception of collision, motion, and depth with applications to transportation (e.g., driving and aviation), medicine (minimally-invasive surgery), military (e.g., night vision goggles), and sport (e.g., umpiring), (b) human factors in medicine (e.g., patient safety), and (c) performance in nursing (e.g., medication administration)

Dr. JAMIE C. GORMAN
Assistant Professor

Research Interests:
What is the nature of interpersonal coordination such that teams and groups may accomplish more than a collection of individuals working alone? In my lab we examine this question across multiple levels of analysis through the study of coordinated actions, communication, and kinematics. These coordination phenomena are modeled using nonlinear dynamics. Research contexts include development of team skill in remote vehicle operations (e.g., an unmanned rover), creative team problem solving, and medical team performance. Much of this research is motivated by viewing cognition as an interactive process across human-environment systems.

Dr. KEITH JONES
Associate Professor

Research Interests: Tele-operated robots, Autonomous robots

  • What factors constrain whether a robot can be tele-operated through a given aperture?
  • Can tele-operators accurately judge whether a robot can be tele-operated through an aperture?

For Autonomous robots.
  • Can we develop robots that acquire information through active exploration? If so, what are the advantages/disadvantages of doing so?
  • Can people judge the affordances of autonomous robots?
  • Can we leverage what we know about how people judge affordances associated with other people to design robots that have that ability?
