Dr Jose Perezgonzalez PhD

Senior Lecturer

Doctoral Supervisor
School of Aviation

I am looking for highly motivated students, competent in research and statistics, who wish to carry research as part of a Masters' or PhD degree. Prospective topics of interest are in the line of the following:

- Improving decision making and performance in the face of uncertainty

- 21st century aviation psychology

- Evidence-based decision making for aviation managers

- Leisure engagement, leisure satisfaction, subjective well-being, and performance of flight crews

- Pilots' mental health

- Exploring the acceptability of fully automatic commercial flying

- Exploring the viability of airships in Australia

I research in aviation, psychology and human factors. I'm aiming for better science, especially in psychology and related areas, in regards to fostering a better understanding of Fisher's and Neyman-Pearson's approaches to data testing and discouraging the use of NHST for such purpose. Recently, I have proposed a reconceptualization of significance testing, a tutorial for data testing, and a clarification of p-values, significance, and meta-analysis. I will seek to expand into confidence intervals and hypothesis testing in the future.
