Bio:

Dr. Prewett received his Ph.D. in Industrial/Organizational Psychology from the University of South Florida in 2009. Before moving to Central Michigan, he taught a Master's level course in psychometric theory at Wayne State University, and worked on several research projects for the Army Research Laboratory (ARL).

Research Interest:

Dr. Prewett's research investigates the nature of teamwork during group tasks, as well as the variables that lead to effective teamwork. His prior research includes the development and evaluation of a teamwork training program for medical residents, and a review on the personality traits relevant to teamwork. He remains interested in keeping an active research program and applying his research to improve staffing, training, and performance appraisal for team-based jobs.

He is also interested in the effects of new technologies on human performance and collaboration. Prior research in this area has included reviews of human-robot collaboration, and the use of devices that convey information to human auditory and tactile senses. His future research interest in this area is the effect of technology on teamwork.
