Gyeongcheol Cho is an assistant professor in the Psychology Department at The Ohio State University. He earned his B.A. in economics with a minor in mathematics from Korea University in South Korea in 2017 and obtained his Ph.D. in Quantitative Psychology from McGill University in Canada in 2023. His research is devoted to advancing quantitative methods to explore and confirm the intricate relationships that exist between human behavioral, psychological, and biological variables, with a special emphasis on the measurement of theoretical constructs. From a technical standpoint, his research encompasses factor/component analyses, structural equation modeling, and interpretable machine learning.
