2012 Distinguished Professional Contributions Award

Eduardo Salas, University of Central Florida

Dr. Salas has been a prolific contributor to the practice of I-O in applied settings, illustrating how good science can have a significant impact when translated and applied to real organizational needs in meaningful and practical ways. His expertise includes helping organizations to foster teamwork, design and implement team training strategies, facilitate training effectiveness, develop safety cultures, and design learning environments. His work has directly changed practice in the military, medical, and aviation arenas, as well as various corporate sectors such as banking and energy. For example, his team training research and practice guidelines have been an energizing force for changes in both the aviation and medical fields, which have led to widely adopted procedures that have helped save lives. A past president of SIOP and a SIOP Fellow, he has written or coauthored more than 350 journal articles and book chapters, coedited 20 books, and has served on editorial boards of several major journals.
