Eugenia Fuenzalidia Eugenia Fuenzalida Associate Professor, Psychology; Associate Director, Cognitive Science Research Center Dale Hall Tower 715 405-325-7720 Ph.D., Experimental Psychology emphasis in Personality - University of Oklahoma, 2000


Dr. Fuenzalida's research focus is interdisciplinary as it combines the study of both personality and human factors. She primarily studies traits with biological and perceptual bases (e.g., extraversion, anxiety, and neuroticism) and is particularly interested in research employing human performance and/or psycho-physiological measures. Of particular interest is the optimization of performance in safety-sensitive occupations. She has also worked in the design and implementation of training protocols to both enhance and optimize performance in high-risk occupations. Additionally, collaborative efforts have systematically examined risk factors (e.g., sleep deprivation and sub-intoxication) that impair human performance.
