Professor Mettler’s research focuses on guidance of aerial vehicles in challenging tasks and environments, with an emphasis on algorithms for autonomous guidance and human interactive guidance. She runs the Interactive Guidance and Control Lab (IGCL), with the primary aim of developing formal methods for the system-wide study of human, human-assisted, and autonomous control of vehicles. Some of Dr. Mettler’s specific research includes real-time planning and decision making for dynamic systems; the system integration of control, planning, and perceptual functions; and the principles of cognitive functions involved in spatial reasoning and adaptation. Her work involves an interdisciplinary approach, combining theory of controls and dynamics with psychology and neurosciences. She is affiliated with the University of Minnesota’s Center for Cognitive Sciences.
