Martin Schedlbauer focuses on human performance modeling and the development of collaborative software. In the area of human–computer interaction, he has investigated how people perform certain tasks while walking, distracted, performing another cognitive task, or in a non-stationary environment. This research has led to several new completion-time models that are applicable to the development of mobile devices, vehicle navigation systems, and maritime systems.
He has taught information science courses at the College of Computer and Information Science since 2008 and is also the managing principal of the Cathris Group, which provides software consulting and education to industry professionals.
