Hamilton, Kevin

Biographical Sketch & Research Interests
I am interested in a broad range of topics in applied psychology which fall under the general interdisciplinary themes of Human Factors and Ergonomics. I am particularly interested in environmental variables and their interrelationship with human health and performance in the context of specialized working and living environments. Sample topic areas include shift work, hyperbaric medicine, maritime operations, aviation psychology, as well as architectural systems and their relationship with human behaviour.

Courses Taught
PSYC 101 Introduction to Biological and Cognitive Psychology, PSYC 102 Introduction to Developmental, Social, Personality, and Clinical Psychology
