Lacey Davis

Graduate Research Assistant
West Lafayette
While completing her bachelor's degree in Aerospace Engineering at California Polytechnic University, San Luis Obispo, Lacey was actively involved in student projects ranging from test driving a prototype solar car, performing with Cal Poly's dance company, leading a Venus rover design team, and organizing outreach events for local middle schools. These experiences culminated her love for researching odd problems and working in a collaborative environment whether that be with other students on a project, choreographers and dancers, or youth communities interested in STEM. At Purdue she completed a Master's in Astrodynamics and Space Applications and began her PhD research analyzing human-system interactions in complex, collaborative and high-risk environments with the goal of designing safe human space exploration methods. Research interests: space exploration, human-machine interactions, communication and information architectures.
