There are currently four faculty in the quantitative psychology program. In addition, several faculty in other areas have strong quantitative backgrounds and interests, and interact with quantitative faculty and students on a regular basis.
Professor, Ph.D., KU Leuven (Belgium), 1977 - Generalized linear mixed models and item response theory with a focus on explanatory models, applications to intelligence, personality, and educational measurement.
Associate Professor; Ph.D., University of Colorado, 1994 - Judgment and decision making. Current work: risk perception, precautionary reasoning, information distortion in risky decisions, perceived fungibility of outcomes in repeated-play decisions.
Assistant Professor; Ph.D., University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, 2012 - Quantifying uncertainty inherent in results obtained from fitting models to data, especially latent variable models. Understanding the limits of statistical results and ascertaining statistical conclusion validity is central to her work.
Associate Professor; Ph.D., Purdue University. 1992 - Mathematical models of simple decision making in memory and cognition, quantitative methods. Current work: mathematical models of confidence in memory retrieval, and statistical methods for reaction time analysis.
Professor; Ph.D., University of Michigan, 1971 - Human judgment and decision making. Current work: sunk cost effect, disaggregated vs. holistic methods of evaluation, decision making among seriously ill patients and their physicians. Editorial Board: Journal of Behavioral Decision Making, Organizational Behavior and Human Performance. Joint Appointment in the Center for Health Outcomes, Policy, and Evaluation Studies.
Ph.D., University of Minnesota - Measurement, with a focus on classical test theory, psychological testing, measurement and use of personality variables in vocational behavior and decision-making.
Professor; Ph.D, University of Southern California, 1980 - Applications of structural equation models and random coefficient models to psychological data.
Associate Professor; Ph.D., University of Illinois. 1975 - Mathematical and cognitive psychology; mathematical models of decision making; measurement theory; psychological scaling. Current work: judgment and decision making; subjective uncertainty estimation; mental workload assessment; additive models and conjoint measurement.
