Welcome to the BHP Lab!
The Bioastronautics and Human Performance (BHP) Laboratory focuses on investigating human performance in extreme environments and developing technologies and countermeasures to improve human health and performance.
Our multidisciplinary approach integrates aerospace engineering, biomedical sciences, and human factors to advance our understanding of human physiological responses and human-system performance in partial gravity. Specifically, we employ human-in-the-loop experiments, computational models/simulations, and virtual/augmented reality to characterize and improve the many aspects of human performance.
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 behavior and performance.
We are always looking for talented and collaborative undergraduate students, graduate students, visiting research scholars, and postdoctoral fellows! If you are interested in joining us, you can find additional information in Opportunities.
