Bruce Brown, Professor
Office: 1098 KMBL
I was born and raised in American Fork, Utah. My missionary service was in the Western Canadian Mission. I attended the University of Utah, graduated from Brigham Young University with a B.S. degree and an M.S. degree, and obtained my PhD in psychology from McGill University in Montreal, Canada. I did post-doctoral work in mathematical psychology at University of Michigan.
My primary current research focus is the development of methods for neuropsychological measurement. In particular, our research team has been investigating the extraction of cognitive components from event-related potentials (EEG waves) as biomarkers for neuropsychiatric illnesses. I also work with students and faculty on the application of quantitative methods to organizational psychology problems, such as sexual harassment in the workplace, and I occasionally co-author papers on the statistical properties of name corpora. I am also supervising my doctoral student Logan Kowallis with his dissertation in the area of vocal emotion.
