The STAR Lab researches teamwork and the factors that influence its performance.

The research on teamwork includes team decision making, predictors of strong team membership, effects of communication technology on performance, team training, and overall team performance.

The studies conducted are on teams with 2-6 participants with a variety of simulations and games (such as spaceship bridge simulator "Artemis"). This allows observation of team functioning in a controlled environment.

The STAR lab works on projects in a variety of team-centric domains like medicine, aviation, combat, and long duration space flight teams.

This lab continues to support ERAU's aviation mission through collaboration with Dr. Ryan Wallace in the College of Aviation examining effectiveness of crew-resource management training on the next generation of pilots and aviation specialists.
