Karanvir’s research interests lie in studying interruption management and long-term human-machine trust evolution in complex, high-risk, and time-constrained multi-task environments such as aviation. Under the guidance of Dr. Nadine Sarter, Karanvir is looking to explore how frequent interruptions affect performance of operators controlling multiple unmanned autonomous vehicles, and develop guidance for the design of interfaces that support the efficient integration of a large number of interruptions. Karanvir has a background in Computer Engineering and Art. Prior to joining the IOE PhD program, he worked as a software developer and user interface designer at a startup company where he led the design and development of software and hardware products for facilitating human teaming with aerial and ground-based autonomous systems.
