Dissertation Research

How can vibrotactile technology be used to direct people in cognitively demanding, high-stress situations? My work uses vibrations (or vibrotactile stimuli) to reduce the mental workload of interpreting visual and auditory messages.

Studies were conducted with Engineering Acoustic Instruments’ C2 Tactor System.

FAA – PEGASAS Group 4: Weather Technology in the Cockpit

Every year, the US experiences roughly 55 general aviation fatalities. These are most commonly due to pilots flying into hazardous weather they are not properly trained for. Group 4’s goal is to establish whether this is due to non-compliance, misunderstanding of weather information, or pilots not noticing weather alerts.
