The RLC Seminar will be presented by Caroline Cao, Ph.D. (left), professor of biomedical, industrial, and human factors engineering and professor of surgery.

“The goal of human factors engineering is to design technology and systems that work, applying knowledge of limits and capabilities of the human user in the design process,” according to Dr. Cao. “Research in the Ergonomics in Remote Environments Laboratory (EREL) is focused on fundamental issues in human-machine interaction, and applications in enabling technology for minimally invasive surgery.”

Dinner will be provided on Jan. 30. Please RSVP to Adam Deardorff (deardorff.2@wright.edu) if you plan to attend.
