Clinton Marquardt – Human Fatigue Specialist
Clinton is the only Fatigue Specialist to have served as the Senior Human Factors Investigator with the Transportation Safety Board (TSB) of Canada where he contributed expertise to 88 accident investigations.

Prior to his work with the TSB, Clinton was the Technical Director of the Royal Ottawa Hospital Sleep Disorders Centre where he began his career in behavioural sleep medicine as a neurophysiology professional. In his role as Technical Director, he played an instrumental part in the development of the first digital polysomnograph system. The Sandman system set the international standard and was the catalyst for many similar systems.

He holds a Master of Arts Degree in Psychology with a specialization in behavioural sleep medicine as well as the RPSGT designation recognized by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine. Clinton has published widely in scholarly journals and professional resources.
“On behalf of the Organizing Committee, may I thank you for contributing so much to the conference; both in your presentation and for the workshops. The verbal feedback I have received so far is summed up in one quote ‘It was worth coming just to hear Mr. Marquardt’. I, and all my colleagues here at RAIB fully concur with that comment.”
