Transportation and Auditory research
Dr. Baldwin teaches and conducts research in conjunction with the Human Factors and Applied Cognition program. She has over 20 years of experience investigating human factors issues in mental workload, surface and air transportation and cognitive aging. Her primary research interests are in the area of Applied Auditory Cognition. Much of her work involves the use of neurophysiological measures (i.e., EEG, ERP, EKG, and eye tracking) to examine the effort expended when people perform multiple modality dual tasks as a function of changes in sensory or environmental condition or cognitive aspects of the task. Dr. Baldwin has an active line of externally funded research and is currently working in conjunction with sponsors such as the National Highway Traffic Safety Foundation, Federal Highway Administration, Northrup Grumman, and Lockhead Martin. Previously she has successfully completed multiple projects for the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation and both NASA Langley and NASA Ames.
