Eric ChanceyBio

Eric Chancey joined the Crew Systems and Aviation Operations Branch in 2018 as an aerospace research engineer. He earned an M.S. in applied experimental psychology (2013) and Ph.D. in human factors psychology (2016) from Old Dominion University, where he studied human-automation interaction and trust. Before joining NASA, he was a senior behavioral scientist with Leidos in Dayton, OH. During that time he worked on human-systems integration efforts for several Air Force weapons system trainers. He also conducted training research on intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) operations with the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL). Currently, he is the PI and Activity Lead for the Human-Autonomy Teaming (HAT) Foundational Research group under NASA’s Transformative Tools and Technologies Autonomous Systems (T3-AS) sub-project. His group conducts basic and applied research on HAT principles and tools that support increasingly autonomous small unmanned aircraft system (sUAS) operations and urban air mobility (UAM) concepts.
