Tyler Burleigh Research Scientist PhD scientist w/ full-stack chops

About

As a PhD graduate and career scientist, I have 10 years of human subjects research experience. This includes experimental and observational research, with quantitative and qualitative methods.

I've published 10 peer-reviewed research articles (6 first-author), cited 196 times (Google Scholar). Through this research, I've introduced novel theory, methods, and measurements.

I am now working for Data Cubed, LLC (datacubed.com) where I oversee the development, documentation, and validation of scientific measures — mainly clinical/psychological self-report measures and gamified cognitive tasks.
