Bio

Dr. Matthew Marshall received his B.S. Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering and M.S. in Industrial and Operations Engineering from the Rochester Institute of Technology, and his Ph.D. in Industrial and Operations Engineering from the University of Michigan. He joined the Industrial and Systems Engineering faculty in 2001. His teaching and research focus on integrating people into systems. He teaches courses in the areas of Human Factors, Ergonomics, Biomechanics, and Safety Engineering.

Dr. Marshall’s research involves the evaluation of upper extremity biomechanics. He collaborates frequently with industry to address a wide range of applied ergonomic problems. In addition, he conducts research on the biomechanics of sign language interpreting in order to understand how to minimize the likelihood of interpreters developing musculoskeletal disorders. He has also received funding from National Science Foundation to develop an approach for improving problem solving skills among students who are deaf or hard of hearing. His work has appeared in Ergonomics, Human Factors, Applied Ergonomics, and WORK. He collaborates frequently with industry to address a wide range of applied ergonomic problems, and his work has been supported by both OSHA and the NY State Department of Labor.

Currently Teaching

EGEN-100
1 Credits
A one-credit hour seminar course for engineering exploration students that provides information to introduce the seven engineering programs offered at RIT. Program curricula, sample lab/project work, and various career opportunities pertaining to each major are presented.
ISEE-345
3 Credits
Time value of money, methods of comparing alternatives, depreciation and depletion, income tax consideration and capital budgeting. Cannot be used as a professional elective for ISE majors. Course provides a foundation for engineers to effectively analyze engineering projects with respect to financial considerations.
EGEN-132
1 Credits
The first course in a series of courses for engineering honors students focused on how innovative products are developed, designed and manufactured to effectively meet the expanding needs of a global economy. This one-credit hour seminar course focuses on the key elements associated with the process of concept creation; namely, how individuals identify promising ideas for new products and how these ideas are shaped and refined in ways that will optimize the product's success in the marketplace, from the perspective of customer demand.
