K. Michael Dresel, Ph.D. Biography
I am a shrink who took a wrong turn somewhere and ended up in Aviation/Aerospace Human Factors. I was finishing my Ph.D. in experimental psychology at the University of Manitoba when my wife and I relocated to Wichita, KS for her internship. I found work at Boeing, which provided a great introduction and jumping off space for my career in human factors. I was able to apply all of the psychology, research design/methods and statistics I learned in graduate school and helped create products that actually make a difference in the world. I have worked on most of the parts of the airplane, including the flight deck (military and civilian), the factory, passenger accommodations and maintenance. I have a private pilot license.
Personally, I have recently retired from Boeing where I spent many years doing applied human factors on many parts of the Boeing products
