Fabio Leite

Associate Professor, Experimental/Cognitive Psychology, Department of Psychology; Associate Dean, Lima Campus

Dr. Leite’s research training is in the modeling of cognitive processes, and his primary line of research involves the analysis of response time and accuracy data from quick decisions in order to infer how people process information and make speeded decisions. He has also studied how well IQ predicts response time (compared with a perceptual threshold measure, inspection time) and how cooperative decision making evolves in an experimental session in light of different performance strategies adopted by the other player. A current project (as of August 2016) involves modeling data blindly (to experimental manipulations) to test the validity of response time data inference.
