Nita Lewis Shattuck (formerly Miller)

Associate Professor of Operations Research
Ph.D., University of Texas, 1982

Nita Lewis Shattuck is an Associate Professor at the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) in Monterey, California. She holds faculty appointments in the Operations Research and Systems Engineering apartments and the MOVES Institute. Dr. Shattuck teaches courses in human factors engineering and human systems integration, directs thesis research, and pursues her research interests in human fatigue in operational settings, individual and team performance, decision-making, situation awareness, and military command and control. Dr. Shattuck founded the Human Systems Integration Program at NPS is 2003, serving as the Program Director until 2008. She has developed and taught multiple distance and resident courses and has collaborated in the design of a Distance Learning HSI Masters degree.

In her work with the military, Dr. Shattuck has studied the effects of fatigue, sleep deprivation, thermal stress, acceleration (+Gz-induced LOC and motion) in various operational and laboratory environments. Most recently, Dr. Shattuck served as principal investigator for a study of sleep and manning aboard the USS Independence (LCS 2) Rough Water Trials. The study examined sleep patterns and psychomotor performance of Sailors onboard the LCS 2 during rough water trials in January-February of 2014. She reports being very glad to be back on land.

Dr. Shattuck has published widely and is the recipient of the 2013 Surface Navy Association Literary Award which recognizes the best professional article in any publication addressing Surface Navy or Surface Warfare issues, the 2007 'Jimmie' Hamilton Award from the American Society of Naval Engineers (ASNE) for Best Paper, the Roland Calori Award for Best Paper for 2006-2007 in Organizational Studies journal and the 2006 Gary F. Wheatley Award for Best Paper from the International Command and Control Research and Technology. Dr. Shattuck received her Ph.D. in Behavioral Sciences from the University of Texas School of Public Health. She can be reached at: Naval Postgraduate School, Glasgow Hall, Rm 225, Monterey, California 93943. Her email address is nlshattu@nps.edu.

OUTREACH

Dr. Shattuck Interviewed by PilotOnline

"It's about performance. It's about building crew endurance and making them stronger," Shattuck says about altering sleep schedules to accommodate circadian rhythms.

Dr. Shattuck Interviewed at Navy Times

The submarine force has long resisted 24-hour watchbills during deployments, but the skipper of the first sub to test them said they yielded better sleep and more alert watchstanders than the standard 18-hour rotation.

NPS Professor Dr. Nita Shattuck Honored With Surface Navy Association's Literary Award

Dr. Nita Shattuck's work was recently published by the U.S. Naval Institute.  Her article, "A Sea Change in Standing Watch," co-authored by retired Capt. John Cordle was awarded the 2013 Literary Award at the Surface Navy Association's Annual Symposium in Springfield, VA, Jan. 15.  

Sleep for the Night Shift

By Sam Fellman, Navy Times, October 28, 2013
As ships continue to experiment with watchbills that improve sailors' sleep, one of the Navy's foremost performance experts is warning about a new front in the Navy's fight against fatigue: shift work.

NPS Concludes Sleep Study aboard Jason Dunham
By Mass Communication Specialist 2nd Class Deven King, USS Jason Dunham Public Affairs
USS JASON DUNHAM, At Sea (NNS) -- Sailors aboard guided-missile destroyer USS Jason Dunham (DDG 109) concluded their participation in a two-week sleep study, Dec. 17.

The study was conducted by personnel from the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) who came aboard Jason Dunham to interview crewmembers about their watch rotations and monitor their sleep patterns, activity periods and reaction times.

Dr. Nita Shattuck, an associate professor with the NPS Operations Research Department, said Jason Dunham's crew were the perfect candidates for the study.
 
3 hours on, 9 hours off: A better watchbill

By Gidget Fuentes and Tony Lombardo - Staff Writers | Posted Monday July 2
Sailors in the Navy's surface fleet are spending 80-plus hours a week on the job, according to researchers, and it's taking a severe toll. A sailor at sea is already forced to balance multiple job-related tasks, and when you factor in exercise, meals and any career-advancing projects you've got going, there's little time for shut-eye.

The problem can have far-reaching consequences, with a bleary-eyed sailor not only posing a threat to himself, but the entire ship and the mission.

This article first appeared in the Navy Times.
