Areas of Interest

Martijn’s research evolves around the use of computational modeling to study and improve the design of multi-agent sociotechnical systems. His work brings together constructs from cognitive systems engineering and computational modeling with the goal of capturing and evaluating the dynamic and emergent behavior of multi-agent systems involving humans working with technology (automation, robots, artificial intelligence). His PhD thesis was on the development of computational models of work strategies in human-robot teams to analyze how work allocation and interaction modes affect a team’s ability to adapt. Applications of his research are, amongst others, in the air traffic management and manned spaceflight domains.
