Daniel Carruth is Associate Director for Human Factors and Advanced Vehicle Systems at the Center for Advanced Vehicular Systems and an Assistant Research Professor at Mississippi State University. He received his Ph.D. from the Department of Psychology at Mississippi State University. His research interests include modeling and simulation of human interaction with autonomous vehicles as well as the study of human task performance in law enforcement, military, and industrial work. He has published in journals such as Transportation Safety & Security, International Journal of Social Robotics, and International Journal of Industrial Ergonomics. His work has been funded by DoD, NIJ, and multiple industry sponsors. Dr. Carruth oversees a number of projects in the CAVS Driving Simulation Lab, Human Performance Lab, and Robotics testbed.

Research Interest
Daniel Carruth is interested in human perception, cognition, and action in the context of real-world whole body tasks. Dr. Carruth\'s research interests include modeling and simulation of human interaction with autonomous vehicles as well as the study of cognitive and physical factors impacting human performance in athletics, law enforcement, and military domains. Dr. Carruth develops and uses virtual environments for simulation and training.
