Lora Cavuoto is an Assistant Professor in the Industrial and Systems Engineering Department at the University at Buffalo. She joined UB in 2012 after receiving her PhD in Industrial and Systems Engineering from Virginia Tech. She earned an MS in Occupational Ergonomics and Safety and a BS in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Miami. At UB, Dr. Cavuoto directs the Ergonomics and Biomechanics Laboratory. Her current research focuses on quantifying physical exposures and physiological responses in the workplace to identify indicators of fatigue development. Her research work also aims to understand and model the effects of health conditions, particularly obesity and aging, on physical capacity, specifically strength, fatigue, and motor performance. Her work on fatigue and worker safety has recently been funded by the American Society of Safety Engineers Foundation and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health.
