Personal Statement

As an aerospace engineer specialising in flight mechanics, I have an interest in the means to guide aircraft through the atmosphere.  Although much of this guidance is done automatically, there are still flight regimes that require manual input, the final few seconds before landing being a case in point.  The cockpit provides pilots with a large quantity of information but in an environment where the senses are deprived of their natural guidance information (the external view is restricted by the aircraft structure, for example).  If the correct information could be provided in such a way that it resonates with the pilot’s motion perception mechanisms, then this may offer an advantage to the crew in terms of both decreased workload and increased safety.  My research interest is therefore primarily in ‘nature-inspired’ pilot cockpit displays.
