More about me 

Prior to coming to Stanford University, I served as a Human Performance Investigator for the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), investigating the human causes of major transportation accidents. I was also the Deputy Scientific and Technical Advisor for Human Factors to the Administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), and a Human Factors Research Scientist at the US Merchant Marine Academy. During my graduate school years, I also did research for the Department of Epidemiology, Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons and the Stony Brook University School of Medicine, Department of Family and Community Medicine.  My psychology PhD helps me a lot in giving assistance for research in the social sciences.
