NADINE SARTER is currently an associate professor in the Department of Industrial and Operations Engineering and the Center for Ergonomics at the University of Michigan. She received her M.S. degree in experimental/applied psychology from the University of Hamburg (Germany) in 1983 and her Ph.D. in industrial and systems engineering from OSU in 1994. Dr. Sarter’s primary research interests include (1) the design of multimodal interfaces in support of effective human–machine communication and coordination and computer-supported collaborative work, (2) the development of robust and transparent decision support systems, and (3) the use of design and training to support error management in a variety of complex event-driven domains, such as aviation and military operations. From 1994 to 1996, she served as technical advisor to the FAA Human Factors Team to provide recommendations for the design and operation of and training for advanced glass cockpit aircraft. For her research in the aviation domain, she received Aviation Week and Space Technology’s Aerospace Laurels Award for Outstanding Achievement in the Field of Commercial Air Transport in 1996 and the TGIR (Turning Goals Into Reality) Award as member of the UIUC Aircraft Icing Project Team from NASA Glenn Research Center in 2001. Her aviation-related research was supported by NASA, the FAA, and an NSF CAREER award.
