Dr. Erika E. Miller

Assistant Professor, Systems Engineering Department

Erika Image Dr. Erika Miller is an Assistant Professor in the Systems Engineering Department and affiliate with the Mechanical Engineering Department at Colorado State University. Her research is centered on integrating humans with complex systems to enhance safety and performance in the design and evaluation of new and existing infrastructure. Dr. Miller’s work focuses on modeling human behavior and cognitive workload over time to evaluate the interactions between humans and machines, with an emphasis on developing appropriate trust and maintaining situational awareness of human operators with autonomous systems. Her research is primarily applied to the transportation domain; with a current focus of integrating smart technology (e.g., connected vehicles, connected infrastructure, autonomous vehicles) into the transportation system while facilitating safety for all users (e.g., automated, non-automated, motorized, non-motorized). Her education and research backgrounds are in civil engineering, industrial and systems engineering, transportation engineering, and human factors. She received her B.S. from Oregon State University and her M.S. and Ph.D. from the University of Washington.
