Assistant Professor of Human Factors, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University

I have over 10 years of experience conducting experimental and applied research in human factors, with a specific focus on training and teamwork in medical, military, and consumer domains. I have partnered with multiple agencies and institutions throughout my career, including Army Research Laboratory, Research Defense and Engineering Command, Office of Naval Research, Blue-Cross Blue-Shield, University of Minnesota Medical School, Medical University of South Carolina, University of Texas: Southwestern, AHRQ/DoD TeamSTEPPS, University of Kansas Medical School, Childrens Mercy Hospital, and Sedgwick County EMS. I have led projects aimed at the implementation of HF/E in complex, high-risk systems to increase safety and human performance. This work includes command and control of tele-operated unmanned systems, communication and teamwork in medical systems, and simulation-/game- based training for advanced skills including playing guitar and identifying combat vehicles. My work includes over 50 publications and over 60 presentations at national and international conferences.
