Prof. Barrett Caldwell is an Associate Professor in Industrial Engineering, and Aeronautics & Astronautics at Purdue University. He also serves as the Director of the NASA-funded Indiana Space Grant Consortium. His background includes undergraduate degrees from MIT in 1985 (one in astronautics; one in humanities) and a PhD (1990) in social psychology from the University of California-Davis. Prof. Caldwell’s professional contributions to human performance in extreme and challenging environments date back to the 1980s. His graduate experience includes privacy requirements for the Freedom Space Station design, participation in a 1987 conference on Antarctica and other extreme environment analogues for human performance in long duration space flight, and a 1990 dissertation focused on group dynamics of park rangers in isolated US national park sites. Prof. Caldwell has been involved with the Society for Human Performance in Extreme Environments since its inception in the mid 1990s. Prof. Caldwell’s research focus is on how people get, share, and use information well. More specifically, his research examines human factors engineering aspects of information flow, task coordination, and team performance as affected by information technology and organizational factors. Prof. Caldwell’s approach emphasizes field studies of team-based knowledge sharing and task coordination in complex settings (such as healthcare facilities and spaceflight mission control). His research efforts have resulted in over 100 scientific publications since 1990, including over 40 papers focused on human performance in space flight contexts. Prof. Caldwell has also examined human performance factors influencing risk reduction in complex systems, and methods to support human behavior to achieve system recovery from degraded conditions. His projects since 2000 have been funded by a variety of sources including Idaho National Laboratory, Motorola, NASA, Regenstrief Center for Healthcare Engineering, and United Space Alliance.
