Provost Professor

Professor Jerome Busemeyer received his PhD as a mathematical psychologist from University of South Carolina in 1980, and later he enjoyed a post-doctoral position at University of Illinois. For 14 years he was a faculty member at Purdue University, and then he moved on to Indiana University in 1997, where he is now. His research has been steadily funded by NSF, NIMH, and NIDA, and in return he served on national grant review panels for these agencies. He has published over 100 articles in various cognitive and decision science journals such as Psychological Review as well as serving on their editorial boards, and he served as the Chief Editor of Journal of Mathematical Psychology from 2005-2010. For the years 2005 to 2007, he spent time in the Washington DC area as the Manager of the Cognition and Decision Program at the Air Force Office of Scientific Research. He became a fellow of the Society of Experimental Psychologists in 2006. His research includes mathematical models of learning and decision making, and he formulated a dynamic theory of human decision making called decision field theory. Currently he is working on a new theory applying quantum probability to human judgment and decision making, and he published a new book on this topic with Cambridge University Press.
