Dr. Ikechukwu Ohu works on projects relating to the (physical and cognitive) ergonomic support of grocery store workers and healthcare providers, robotics, and computer integrated manufacturing (CIM). His research interests are focused on the improvement of productivity (a workplace outcome) and wellbeing (an individual outcome) in working environments involving the interaction of humans and machines, and the study of human behavior and movement in work and non-work environments. He is keenly interested in the psychology and dynamics of human-computer, human-robot, and human-cyberphysical systems interactions. He is also intrigued by work-life interaction research and studies in augmented cognition.
