Rachel is an experienced professional researcher with over 7+ years working on system safety and human-automation interaction. Rachel works on interventions (such as training), decision support tools, and concepts of operations, to make human-automation interaction more harmonious to achieve better performance and safety as a team. She has worked on multiple projects for the FAA and ONR including building computational decision making simulations; designing, running, and analyzing human-subjects studies for NextGEN technologies, electronic flight bags, and degraded information environments; and, interviewing subject matter experts to incorporate contextual information. She has published extensively on these topics, including 6 journal articles, 9 conference papers, 4 technical reports, and a book chapter.
While earning my PhD in aerospace engineering, she has served as a Research Engineer 1 for 4+ years and her responsibilities encompassed all facets of project management including assisting in the proposal writing of my current projects with her PI, creating and actively managing the project budgets totaling over $500K (including allocation and oversight of salaries, materials, and travel spending) while also managing a total of 20 graduate students and 15 undergraduate students over her tenure.
