Synopsis:The research I am conducting centers around improving pilot performance with remotely piloted aircraft. To quantitatively measure a subject's psychophysiological reaction to various workloads, EEG, ECG and EOG measurements are taken throughout simulation. Analysis of the data reveals potential weaknesses in the system as well as neurological and cardiac responses. Additionally, I am starting on a project which aims to quantify and investigate interpersonal trust as it relates to piloting relationships.
