Labs & Facilities
Center for Ergonomics
The Center for Ergonomics operates within the Department of Industrial and Operations Engineering and is dedicated to gaining and sharing a better understanding of how tools, technologies and work practices affect health and performance and how they can be improved through human-centered design.
Center for Healthcare Engineering and Patient Safety (CHEPS)
The Center for Healthcare Engineering and Patient Safety (CHEPS) breaks down barriers of language, culture, and siloing between engineering and healthcare.
Data Science Lab
The focus of the Data Science Lab is on developing machine learning and decision-making methodologies that facilitate the transformation from an information-rich to a decision smart system.
Guikema Research Group
The Guikema Research Group is focused on and grounded in risk analysis, statistical learning theory, agent-based modeling, stochastic simulation, decision analysis, and agent-based modeling.
Human-automation Interaction and Cognition Lab (THInC)
THInC lab research is conducted primarily in the context of highly complex event-driven domains, such as aviation, the military, space operations, medicine, and the automotive industry.
Interaction and Collaboration Research Lab (ICRL)
The Interaction and Collaboration Research Lab (ICRL) aims to understand how humans interact and collaborate with each other, with autonomous agents and with robots, and to propose design solutions facilitating such interactions and collaborations.
This interdisciplinary research group brings together methods from human factors, biomechanics, and robotics. It strives to understand the physical and cognitive interactions for goal-oriented human task performance and support operational decision making that relies on manual task performance.
