IJtsma joins cognitive systems engineering faculty
Martijn IJtsma has joined the Department of Integrated Systems Engineering as an Assistant Professor in September 2019.
Martijn received a Bachelor of Science degree in aerospace engineering from the Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) in 2013, followed by a Master of Science degree in aerospace engineering with a specialization in control and simulation from the TU Delft in 2016. He earned his PhD degree in aerospace engineering in 2019 from the Georgia Institute of Technology.
Martijn’s research focuses on the development and application of computational methodologies to facilitate and improve the design of multi-agent sociotechnical systems. His work brings together constructs from cognitive systems engineering and computational modeling with the goal of capturing and evaluating the dynamic and emergent behavior of multi-agent systems. His PhD thesis was on the development of computational models of work strategies in human-robot teams to analyze how work allocation and interaction modes affect a team’s ability to adapt. Applications of his research are in the air traffic management and manned spaceflight domains.
Martijn will be teaching a senior-level undergraduate course on cognitive systems engineering and develop a new course on cognitive work analysis and computational modeling at the graduate level.
