The mission of the HSE Lab is to develop innovative engineering solutions to the design of socio-technical systems through the following objectives:

  • Research: To apply and extend industrial and systems engineering methods and human factors science to the analysis, design, and evaluation of human technology systems.
  • Education: To foster an appreciation for human-systems engineering and design in a future generation of industrial engineers.
  • Societal Impact: To improve human health, welfare, and productivity through the design and evaluation of socio-technical systems.
  • Collaborations: To build an interdisciplinary research teams combining basic science, engineers, and domain experts in solving problems with societal impact.
