Biography

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.

Research Interests

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 student and faculty colleagues on studies of the cognitive and psychiatric effects of latent infections. Until COVID dies down somewhat our EEG studies (for which I have a grant from the Simmons Foundation) is on hold. In the mean time, I do research mentoring with undergraduate and graduate students using vocal emotion research studies using a very large corpus (11,387 recordings) of emotion vocalizations created as part of a recent dissertation in our lab.

Teaching Interests

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.
