The mission of the IO psychology graduate program is to train students to think critically and apply theory, research, and methods to organizations. More specifically, students will use these skills to enhance organizational performance and well-being, develop teams, and improve business outcomes within professional settings.

BiographyI am an assistant professor in the Department of Social and Behavioral Sciences at Florida Southern College.
I earned my B.S. in Psychology from Florida Southern College and both my M.S. and Ph.D. in Human Factors and Behavioral Neurobiology from Embry Riddle Aeronautical University.
I strive to make a long-lasting and significant impact by examining and advancing the science and practice of Industrial/Organizational and Human Factors Psychology. My research interests are varied and focus on topics such as human performance, teamwork, team training, motivation, idea generation, system safety, training, etc.
