BASALT Research Objectives

Matthew’s focus is on understanding the capabilities necessary to enable science-driven exploration, so that future astronauts and mission controllers will have the tools to operate autonomously. Matthew is part of the Minerva team that will develop and field test real-time support tools for BASALT. He will also support the EVA operations team develop the EVA tools and materials necessary to conduct the field deployments


Matthew James Miller is a doctoral candidate in the Cognitive Engineering Center at the Georgia Institute of Technology. He received a B.S. and a M.S. in Aerospace Engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology in 2012 and 2014, respectively. He has interned at the NASA Johnson Space Center, Charles S. Draper Laboratory, The Aerospace Corporation, and ATA Engineering. His research interest is in the area of decision making and decision support development in complex work domains. Currently, he is working towards developming advanced EVA decision support tools for astronauts working in time-delayed environments. He is supported by a NASA Space Technology Research Fellowship and is advised by Dr. Karen Feigh.
