Research Abstract
My research centers on the formulation and testing of mathematical models for empirical phenomena. While much of my empirical research has involved psychophysical studies (especially in audition), I have worked in variety of fields including human memory, dominance relations in animal societies, decision and choice, search behavior, expert systems, and computer-assisted instruction. My current research is heavily invested in the theory of signal detection with an emphasis on exploring theoretical links between the various empirical procedures commonly used to elicit data. In a related vein, I maintain an active interest in developing sound statistical procedures fore evaluating models, such as algebraic measurement structures, which can be expressed in purely ordinal terms.
