Dr. David Woods (Purdue '79) is a professor at Ohio State University in the Institute for Ergonomics and Past-President of the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society. From his initial work following the Three Mile Island accident in nuclear power, to studies of coordination breakdowns between people and automation in aviation accidents, to his role in today's national debates about patient safety, he has studied how human and team cognition contributes to success and failure in complex, high risk systems.
