IJtsma, Martijn


Martijn IJtsma is an assistant professor in the Integrated Systems Engineering department at the Ohio State University. He received a BSc and MSc degree in aerospace engineering from the Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands, and a PhD degree in aerospace engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta. His research examines operations of heterogeneous multi-agent systems in naturalistic, high-complexity environments and addresses fundamental questions related to how human and AI/robot capabilities can best be integrated to improve the safety and resilience of high-stakes operations. This research is applied in a variety of domains, including smart mobility, air traffic management, spaceflight operations, and disaster response. He received an NSF CAREER award in 2023.
