Introduction to the Air Force Research Laboratory: Internship, Career, and Collaboration Opportunities

ACSHF Forum

Please join us for the next ACSHF Forum on Monday, February 24 from 2-3pm in room 109 of the Harold Meese Center.  Dr. Gregory Funke will be (remotely) presenting Introduction to the Air Force Research Laboratory: Internship, Career, and Collaboration Opportunities.

This talk will provide an overview of the research conducted at the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) and the opportunities available to students and faculty at MTU to engage with the AFRL. The first part of the talk will provide a general overview of the organization of the AFRL, introducing the numerous divisions that conduct human-centered research. The second part of the talk will highlight some of the intership, career, and fellowship opportunities available to undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral researchers and then introduce collaborative opportunities available to university faculty who are interested in partnering with the AFRL. The final part of the talk will provide a brief overview of Dr. Funke's current research in the Cognitive Enhancement and Biodynamics Branch of the Airman Bioengineering Division of the AFRL.

Dr. Gregory Funke is the lead of the Team Research Group in the Cognitive Enhancement and Biodynamics Branch, Airman Bioengineering Division, Airman Systems Directorate, 711th Human Performance Wing, Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL). His research at AFRL is currently focused on individual and team adaptive aiding and human-machine teaming. HIs research interests include the theory and measurement of team processes and performance; leveraging emerging nonlinear mathematics to create real-time indices of team state, coordination, and performance from nueophysiological and behavior responses; exploration of the neuroergonomics of vigilance and sustained attention; investigating how introduction of a machine teammate alters team processes and performance; methods to enable mult-human, multi-heterogeneous machine teams; interface designs to improve cyber network defender situation awareness and effectiveness; and social engineering and influence in cyber-mediated environments. Dr. Funke received his PhD in HUman Factors Psychology from the University of Cincinnati in 2007.
