In my research I focus on human factors: the interaction between humans and their technological environment and how this can be improved. My specific focus is on issues related to perception and cognitive task performance. My research links directly with the goals of the roadmap Operations and Human Factors of the Unit Defence, Safety and Security, in particular with the work on human performance and human-machine collaboration.
Together with prof. M. Meeter from the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics of the VU University I have supervised the PhD research of Kim White. She has studied subjective and physiological effects of aircraft noise on human performance. Her work resulted in 3 peer-reviewed publications and 5 peer-reviewed conference proceedings and a thesis which she defended in December 2018. I was also one of the supervisors of Annemarie Landman, who received her PhD degree cum laude from the Delft University of Technology in September 2019. She conducted several experiments in flight simulators and in an aircraft to study effects of startle and surprise on pilot performance. The research has been published in 7 peer reviewed publications.
