Biography:Teena Garrison received her Ph.D. in Cognitive Science, with a specialization in driver performance and multitasking, from Mississippi State in 2010.

Dr. Garrison is interested in approaches to investigate human-vehicle interactions in domains such as law enforcement, military, and motorsports, as well as attentional and performance impacts of driver distraction.

Her goal is to combine cognitive psychology and human factors engineering to support multitasking in domains where it is central to job performance.


Research Interest: Dr. Garrison's research interests include driving performance, divided and selective attention, and multitasking performance.
