Working at CIDLAB

Researchers at CIDLAB can choose to contribute to any of the various research projects that are currently running at CIDLAB and in collaboration with other research groups at UC Irvine, or they can choose to begin new projects.

Current projects include quantitative modeling of cognition and individual differences[?], Bayesian statistics[?], and implementation and deployment of useful computational algorithms[?]. I am also interested in quantitative approaches of detecting and undoing some of the societal challenges currently faced by psychological science[?] (such as publication bias, fraud detection, and closed access to scientific literature).

Since research at CIDLAB is focused on mathematical modeling, strong quantitative skills are highly desirable. Note that no advanced knowledge of classical statistics is required, nor is a degree in psychology or cognitive science (although the latter might help). Knowledge of at least one programming language such as MATLAB, C(++), or similar is a requirement, and any background knowledge of linear algebra, advanced calculus, stochastic processes is helpful. Depending on the project, a willingness to learn any of these topics may be required. Pages describing specific topics will also list useful background knowledge.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me any time.
