Research

Directs the Collective Design (CoDe) Lab which studies how engineers design systems with distributed authority, resulting in collective decision-making problems that cannot be solved with traditional systems engineering methods. The research builds on theory and tools in design science, economics, and information science to understand and improve engineering design processes. Research methods develop and use models, simulations, and games to understand how individuals and teams interact with design problems. Domains of interest include Earth-observing and communications space systems and (terrestrial) critical infrastructure systems including power, water, communications and transportation.
