Assistant Professor of Industrial Engineering
Dr. Steven Landry completed his Ph.D. in July 2004 at the Georgia Institute of Technology in the School of Industrial and Systems Engineering, concentrating in human-integrated systems, with a minor in cognitive science. At Georgia Tech he investigated procedure following, including an analysis of why pilots may not follow procedures, and principles for display support. His Master of Science was completed in 1999 in Aeronautics and Astronautics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and his Bachelor of Science was completed in 1987 in Electrical Engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute.
Until 2005 he was a research engineer at NASA's Ames Research Center in Mountain View, California. At NASA Dr. Landry worked on the Multi-center Traffic Management Advisor system, an air traffic management decision support tool designed to increase capacity at the nation's most congested airports. Dr. Landry developed a novel distributed scheduling system and helped with the development, deployment, and testing of the system in four FAA enroute control centers. The system has been accepted by the FAA for nationwide deployment.
His publications are in the areas of human factors, aeronautics, and air traffic control and appear in IEEE Transactions on Intelligent Transportation Systems and proceedings of HFES, IEEE, AIAA, and international conferences. He is a member of Sigma Xi, the IEEE Systems, Man, and Cybernetics Society, AIAA, and the Cognitive Science Society. Dr. Landry has over 2,000 heavy jet flight hours as a C-141B pilot with the U.S. Air Force between 1988 and 1996.
