Hello! I am an Associate Professor of Human Factors in the Department of Psychology at Old Dominion University (ODU), where I also hold affiliated faculty positions in the Virginia Modeling, Analysis and Simulation Center (VMASC), the Climate Change and Sea Level Rise Initiative (CCSLRI), the Homeland Security Research Group and Vision Lab. Currently, I am also the Director of the Undergraduate Research Program within the Honors College at ODU.

Prior to arriving at ODU, I received my Ph.D. in Human Factors (Engineering Psychology) from the Aviation Human Factors Division at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. Following this, I spent two years in the Dynamic Decision Making Laboratory at Carnegie Mellon University as a Post-doctoral Fellow.

I am the Founder/Director of the Applied Decision Making lab (estd. 2007) at ODU, which is dedicated to the study of human decision making issues pertaining to defense and homeland security, aviation, and, sustainable energy/climate change. For a detailed account of my research, teaching, and opportunities in my lab,  please click on the links above.
