Dr. David Tobey
Consultant, National Cyberwatch Center
Dr. David Tobey is the Principal Investigator and Executive Director of the National CyberWatch Center, a national consortium of over 400 colleges and universities supported by the National Science Foundation. Dr. Tobey’s research applies the latest advances in neuroscience to understand, assess, and accelerate competence development throughout the lifespan. His research discovered the neural foundations of expert performance—the brain’s equivalent to a software applet that Dr. Tobey labeled a thinkLet. The formation of thinkLets is detected by a new psychometric technique, Potential Performance Analysis™. PPA assesses the level and potential of competence development and identifies appropriate interventions to reach maximum potential.
