Bernard Martin smiles and poses for a portrait.

Bernard Martin

Professor Emeritus


G650 IOE


Professor Martin taught courses in human performance/human factors. His current research interests are focused on 1) the study of vibration-induced alterations on sensory-motor systems, 2) biomechanical stress, 3) sensorimotor systems and 4) long term muscle fatigue. His research includes neurological, behavioral and modeling approaches.
