Biography

Dr. Stevens is Professor (Emeritus), UCLA School of Medicine and a member of the UCLA Brain Research Institute. His recent research has focused on using EEG-derived measures to investigate Team NeuroDynamics in settings as diverse as Submarine Piloting and Navigation by Navy teams and high school problem solving. These studies are leading to quantitative teamwork models showing how teams cognitively organize in response to environmental and task changes. Recent awards include the Foundations of Augmented Cognition Award (2007), Best Paper, Behavioral Research in Modeling and Simulation Conference (2011), and the Admiral Leland Kollmorgen Spirit of Innovation Award from the Augmented Cognition Group (2012). The research support has been supported by the National Science Foundation, DARPA, Office of Naval Research, Dept. of Education and multiple private donors.
