More about Phyllis

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. My psychology PhD helps me a lot in giving assistance for research in the social sciences.
