Research Interests

Dr. Napoli’s research focuses on systems and human performance by capturing, characterizing, and predicting human physiology and system dynamics to optimize the performance of humans within systems (e.g., Semi-auto vehicles, bio-adaptive virtual reality (VR), aeronautic applications, long-term deep-space mission, smart health care systems). Moreover, his research aims to: 1) understand underlying physiological systems and how they drive human performance; 2) develop novel signal processing methods to extract unique physiological discriminates for human states and performance; 3) develop probabilistic theoretical and machine learning frameworks to predict human states, performance, disorders, and diseases; 4) develop models that are interpretable and informative to gain actionable insights to optimally build and improve the design of the human system and enhance human performance.
