Dr. Lamp’s expertise and research is focused on fatigue, sleep, and performance in occupational settings, with a current emphasis on aviation and Fatigue Risk Management Systems (FRMS). As part of Washington State University’s Occupational Sleep Medicine Group, she has been funded for over 7 years by aviation FRMS contracts and is co-PI with the preeminent Dr. Gregory Belenky in one of the labs that provided the methodology for data collection on long range (LR) and ultra long range (ULR) flights that continues to be used for the US Federal Aviation Administration Federal Aviation Regulation 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 117 data collection. Current studies include assessing pilot fatigue, sleep, sleepiness, and cognitive performance during short-range, LR, and ULR commercial flight operations. Her papers published in Aerospace Medicine and Human Performance and Accident Analysis and Prevention and book chapters in Principles and Practice of Sleep Medicine and Sleep Deprivation and Disease focus on fatigue in the workplace, the FRMS process, and commercial aviation pilot sleep during LR and ULR flights. She has authored over 17 technical reports on FRMS routes. She is a member of the Sleep Research Society and Aerospace Medical Association and has presented on these topics at both conferences. She is also a member of the Fatigue Countermeasures Working Group that has published a guidance document for controlled rest (CR) on the flight deck.

Dr. Lamp’s other areas of research and interest include:

-Human equine interactions

-Waking rest

-Studies involving sleep and/or cognitive performance as a primary outcome

-Programs/courses involving tai chi and equine interactions for medical students and other populations
