Welcome to the Quantitative Psychology Graduate Program housed within the L.L. Thurstone Psychometric Laboratory in the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience at University of North Carolina Chapel Hill. Our group consists of seven primary faculty, twelve graduate students, and three post-doctoral fellows. We also maintain many active collaborative relationships with faculty and students drawn from other academic units across campus, including Sociology, Education, Public Health, Statistics and Operations Research, and Biostatistics.
Our guiding mission is to make novel and unique contributions to the science of psychology through the development, evaluation, and application of advanced quantitative methodologies. We primarily focus on methods for measuring and modeling individual behavior, particularly when assessed repeatedly over time. We also strive to meaningfully embed our quantitative and methodological work within the broad realm of the psychological sciences.
