3. Prof. Meike Jipp
Meike Jipp is a professor of “Human Factors in Transportation” at the Faculty of Life Sciences of the Technical University of Braunschweig (Germany). She is currently on leave to be head of the Human-Factors Department and acting head of the Testing Department. Both departments are part of the Institute of Transportation Systems at the German Aerospace Center (DLR).
In her research, Meike Jipp concentrates on improving the cooperation between humans and technology in ground-based transportation: How can automotive systems, public transportation systems, and railway systems be developed and designed so that human mobility is safe, efficient, and comfortable? How can the job profiles of those guiding traffic be designed so that they foster human development? Meike Jipp pursues empirical research regarding human performance potential, human state recognition, and prediction, cooperation patterns of different traffic participants as well as acceptance and usage of transport services. In this context, she also manages projects financed by industry, the German Research Foundation (DFG), and public authorities.
Meike Jipp studied psychology at Mannheim University (Germany) and Carleton University (Canada). After she has received her Ph.D. in 2008, she expanded her research portfolio as a postdoctoral research fellow at Mannheim University. In 2010, she became part of the Institute of Flight Guidance at DLR and investigated the effects of cognitive abilities on human-technology-interaction as a project manager. Another focus of her research was on skill acquisition. Early in 2014, she assumed the responsibility of the group “Driver Cognition and Modelling” at the DLR Institute of Transportation Systems. At the same institute, she became head of the Human-Factors Department in 2015 and, additionally, acting head of the Testing Department in 2017. In parallel to her head-of-the-department position, she became an associate professor at the Faculty of Life Sciences at the Technical University of Braunschweig in 2017.
Meike Jipp authored more than 100 journal articles and peer-reviewed papers in international conference proceedings. She is head of the Thematic Group “Safety” of the European Conference of Transportation Research Institutes (ECTRI) and a member of the commission “Coaction of Natural and Artificial Intelligence” of the Scientific Society of Braunschweig (BWG). Moreover, she is appointed a member of the Reactor Safety Commission of the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) of Germany and a member of the German Psychological Society (DGPs), the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society (HFES), and the Technical Committee on Human-Machine Systems of the International Federation of Automatic Control (IFAC).
