Matthew Gerber

Assistant Professor

Systems and Information Engineering

Research Summary and Bio
I conduct research in Cyber-Human Systems (CHSs), which are defined by the NSF as coupling "humans and computing with the broad goal of advancing human capabilities". I refine this definition to include the concepts of control (humans over computation and vice-versa) and feedback (the basis of control in such systems). I am interested in the CHS topics of device-initiated interruption, human-response validity, device autonomy, and the inference of human objectives and capabilities. Many of these problems involve the processing of human (or natural) language, a topic that I pursued while at Michigan State University (Ph.D., 2011 -- Dissertation). I joined UVa in 2011 as a research faculty member, and I have been an Assistant Professor since 2014. My CV lists full details.
