Sebastien Mamessier
Ph.D. Student (Robotics)
United States

Sebastien Mamessier is a Robotics/AE PhD student in the Cognitive Engineering Center at Georgia Tech. He received a M.S in Aerospace Engineering from Georgia Tech and a Diplome d'Ingenieur from Supaero in 2013.

His Master thesis work focuses on computational modeling of cognitive engineering concepts such as Situation Awareness (SA) and Mental Models to enhance the simulation Human-Automation Interaction (HAI) in socio-technical systems.

Sebastien's PhD research builds on this expertise to develop evaluation methods for SA-centered adaptive cockpit interfaces.

Sebastien's interest span from Human Factors to Artificial Intelligence and Natural Language Processing. Private pilot since 2013, Sebastien also enjoys soccer, astronomy and mobile development.

Recent Projects

NASA Authority & Autonomy 2010-2013

NextGen systems are envisioned to be composed of human and automated agents interacting with dynamic flexibility in the allocation of authority and autonomy. The analysis of such concepts of operation requires methods for verifying and validating that the range of roles and responsibilities potentially assignable to the human and automated agents does not lead to unsafe situations.
