Tyler Fettrow


Tyler joined NASA in January 2022 as an aerospace researcher, specifically in human-machine systems. Tyler trained in neuromechanics (the study of how the brain receives sensory information and produces movement). He received his Ph.D. from University of Delaware, where he investigated the neural control of sensory integration and control of balance during locomotion. He then completed a postdoctoral fellowship at University of Florida learning various neuroimaging and neuromodulation techniques.

Tyler has acquired a broad skillset, including an extensive knowledge of human anatomy and physiology, designing of human experiments, and non-invasive biometric data acquisition and analysis, among others. Tyler is currently working with the National Campaign Human Factors team to understand and improve the human components involved with maneuvering eVTOL vehicles in high density urban environments.
