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.
Currently, my primary teaching areas are quantitative methods, and the history of psychology. Together with three colleagues, I wrote a graduate text in multivariate statistical methods, published by Wiley in 2012, and I am currently working on a psychometrics text with three colleagues that will be published by Wiley in 2020, and a history of psychology text with three colleagues which is about mid-way to completion.
