Elizabeth Blickensderfer


Dr. Beth L. Blickensderfer has over 20 years of experience in human-machine systems research and development using both qualitative and quantitative research methods.  She has designed and validated numerous training programs for purposes such as teaching general aviation pilots to interpret and understand weather displays and fostering crew resource management skills in helicopter and fixed-wing pilots. In addition, she has developed metrics to assess human performance in a range of domains and tasks such as aviation operations, nurses responding to cardiac arrest, and tennis teams.  Her other recent work includes investigating patient safety at a community hospital, measuring general aviation pilots' knowledge and skill at interpreting weather displays, and performing cognitive task analyses to identify safety issues inherent to Live-Virtual-Constructive flight training environments for the U.S. Navy. Dr. Blickensderfer has held leadership positions in both the Human Factors and Ergonomic Society as well as Division 21 Applied Experimental and Engineering Psychology of the American Psychological Association.  She earned an M.S in Industrial/Organizational Psychology and a Ph.D. in Human Factors Psychology from the University of Central Florida.
