Humans learn to interact with many complex dynamic systems. For example, humans learn to ride bicycles, operate cranes, and fly helicopters. Our research seeks to address questions of human learning and control: How do humans learn to control unknown dynamic systems? What control strategies do humans learn? What characteristics make a system difficult for a human to learn to control? How can we enhance the learning process?
