Athul Sudheesh

I am a Cognition and Neuroscience PhD student in the School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences at the University of Texas at Dallas. I work with Dr. Richard M. Golden, as a Research Scientist,  at the Cognitive Informatics and Statistics Lab. As a lab we are interested in the development and analysis of new statistical methods to advance mathematically sound theories in cognitive neuroscience. Currently, we are working on developing a new psychometric model to track how skill profiles (mental models) evolve over time. 

My work lies at the intersection of educational psychology (how humans learn and retain knowledge) and psychometrics (development of statistical tools for objective measurement of skills and knowledge).
