Bio

Lieutenant Colonel Chad Tossell is an Associate Professor and Senior Military Faculty in the Department of Behavioral Sciences and Leadership, United States Air Force Academy, Colorado. He graduated from the University of California, Berkeley with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, a Master of Science in Applied Psychology from Arizona State University and a Doctor of Philosophy in Psychology (Human-Computer Interaction) from Rice University. Lt Col Tossell has taught courses in psychology, human factors, and systems engineering for over a decade and captured the department’s Teaching Excellence Award in 2009. As the Director of the Warfighter Effectiveness Research Center (WERC), Lt Col Tossell has enabled faculty and cadet research across disciplines and mentored dozens of capstone research projects in human-AI teaming, automated driving, social robotics, training, virtual reality, mobile computing, and the human will to fight and make costly sacrifice. This research has resulted in a wide range of publications and has been covered in media outlets such as The Economist and Time Magazine. In 2016, he and his team were awarded theDean’s Team of the Year for Human-AI Teaming research. In 2018, he was awarded the Raja Parasuraman Scientific Excellence Award at the Annual Neuroergonomics Conference. Many of the cadets Lt Col Tossell has mentored in research have went on to graduate school at institutions such as Stanford, MIT, and Johns Hopkins University. Lt Col Tossell has served as a Behavioral Scientist and Developmental Engineer in a variety of technical and leadership positions around the world. In support of Operations Enduring Freedom and Resolute Support, Lt Col Tossell deployed to Afghanistan in 2014-2015 where he served as the Director of Operations for the Security Assistance Office and awarded the Bronze Star Medal.
