Dr.Tyree Mitchell received his PhD in Industrial and Organizational Psychology from DePaul University. He also completed a predoctoral fellowship at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University. His research focuses on understanding how individuals influence others at work to achieve common goals, specifically within leadership, team, and negotiation contexts. He recently was awarded a major grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF), which involves developing students in STEM fields to be culturally competent leaders. Dr. Mitchell also recently completed a major research project for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), which involved reviewing existing quantitative studies on team functioning in space analog environments and identifying team factors that may enhance and inhibit team functioning and effectiveness in such environments. He has published his research in peer-reviewed journals such as, Group Dynamics: Theory, Research and Practice, Frontiers in Psychology, and the Journal of Leadership Education. Dr. Mitchell has also assisted on consulting projects for several private and public organizations, such as the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
