Dr. Bowers holds a Ph.D in Psychology from the University of South Florida. His chief interest is in the use of technology to facilitate teamwork. This takes several forms. The first includes basic research on the nature of effective teamwork and the factors that influence it. A second research thrust involves the training of teams. He is especially interested in the use of training technologies and simulation in training team skills. Finally, he is interested in the use of technology to assist teams in their day-to-day tasks. This includes research in information visualization, groupware, and other hardware/software systems. Besides his interest in team performance, he is also involved in several student projects.
