Dr Oliver Hamlet is a human factors consultant with a PhD in organisational psychology / human factors from the University of Aberdeen, where he is also a member of the Applied Psychology and Human Factors research group. Oliver has studied psychology for over 12 years, and has 7 years of experience conducting research into human factors, the majority of which focused on dynamic high-risk environments such as helicopter search and rescue operations.
In early 2021, Oliver completed a PhD exploring the non-technical skills utilisation of offshore transport and search and rescue helicopter crews, the findings of which were used to develop novel human factors training mechanism for helicopter pilots, known as HeliNOTS systems. The HeliNOTS systems have since been recognised for their substantial impact by academia and industry alike. His research has also been used to develop a taxonomy of factors that influence non-technical skills in the sector.
Currently Oliver acts as the School of Psychology’s Internship and Employability Coordinator, and provides human factors consultancy through his company Axiom Human Factors Limited.
Oliver is passionate about furthering the relationship between academic research and real-world practice, and alongside his human factors consultancy continues his research to identify and train the skills which facilitate high-level human performance
