By Space Coast Daily // April 26, 2012
BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – With college examinations and deadlines for term papers fast approaching, it might not be a bad idea to call upon one particular Florida Tech student for a little help if you’re stuck for words.
Florida Institute of Technology College of Aeronautics graduate student Greg Reverdiau won the “Best Research Paper” award at the 2012 Human Factors and Applied Psychology Student Conference at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University earlier this month.
His paper was “The Effect of a Virtual Air Traffic Control Environment on Learning Radio Communication Procedures.”
For his efforts, Reverdiau earned recognition and a cash prize.
Florida Tech graduate student Mishael Hinds also presented his paper called “The Effect of Vection on Postural Stability and Cognitive Performance in College-Aged Adults in Florida.”
Both students were mentored by John Deaton, Florida Tech College of Aeronautics professor.
Embry Riddle, the University of Central Florida and Florida Tech were the three schools that competed.
More than 20 papers were presented during the conference and a similar number of poster papers were evaluated.
“Florida Tech traditionally performs well at this conference, winning awards several times in the past six years,” Deaton said. “This year the competition was impressive.”
