Assistant Professor

Human Factors/Applied Cognition


Eileen Roesler is a researcher in the field of human-automation interaction, with a specialized focus on the complex challenges stemming from interactions with cutting-edge technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) and robots. With a profound curiosity for the evolving landscape of human-automation synergy, Dr. Roesler's work delves into unraveling the complexities of how individuals engage with and respond to novel technological advancements. Her expertise lies in dissecting the dynamics that arise at the intersection of human relations with these emerging technologies and scrutinizing the behavioral, cognitive, and social aspects of such interactions.

Through the investigations at the human-agent collaboration laboratory (hac-lab), Dr. Roesler and her team shed light on the multifaceted challenges that characterize the interactions between humans and novel (embodied) technologies, thereby paving the way for a more intuitive and socially conscious relationship with the technologies that will shape our future.

Current Research

Our internal Lab Meetings on Thursdays from 4:30 p.m. - 5:30 p.m. in David King Hall 2073A serve as a focal point for nurturing and advancing our research initiatives. If you are interested in exploring opportunities to conduct research at the hac lab, please feel free to reach out to Dr. Roesler for more information and guidance.

Moreover, you can find what is going on at the hac lab in our Blog "what the hac" and on X.

Explore a chance to gain research experience in our new human-robot interaction (hri) lab, open to all. The hri lab presents various involvement opportunities for students at varying levels. Be part of the lab's inaugural event on January 31st!

Selected Publications

All publications can be found on Google Scholar. Furthermore, we prioritize the accessibility of our research to the public. Most of our research articles can be found online directly, otherwise you are welcome to request full texts via ResearchGate.
