Welcome to the BHP Lab!
The Bioastronautics and Human Performance Laboratory focuses on investigating human performance in extreme environments, and on developing technologies and countermeasures to improve human health and performance.
We use both human-in-the-loop experiments and well as computational models and simulation to characterize and improve different aspects of human performance, including physiological responses as well as human-system interaction. Our multidisciplinary approach integrates aerospace and biomedical sciences and engineering as well as human factors, and our areas of interest include: human performance in altered-gravity environments, exercise physiology, extravehicular activity, biomechanics, computational models of physiological systems, and the use of virtual/augmented reality to improve performance.
We are always looking for talented and collaborative undergraduate students, graduate students, visiting research scholars, and postdoctoral fellows so if you are interested in joining us you can find additional information in Opportunities.
