robotics, human-infrastructure interaction
Dr. Joshua Peschel is an Assistant Professor of Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering and Black & Veatch Faculty Fellow at Iowa State University; he also holds courtesy appointments in the departments of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Civil, Construction and Environmental Engineering. Dr. Peschel conducts research in the field of study he has founded called Human-Infrastructure Interaction, which focuses on the understanding, design, and evaluation of co-evolving smart sustainable and resilient infrastructure systems. He broadly defines infrastructure to include agricultural, natural, and urban environments, and his work involves creating new technologies, data sets, and computational models for sensing and sensemaking in these three very different but often interconnected systems. His research program and students have been generously supported by the National Science Foundation, U.S. Departments of Defense and Energy, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and a number of private industry partners.
