Psychological Methodology

In the field of Psychological Methodology we deal with the development and adaptation of new assessment procedures in order to quantify human attributes, the statistical and mathematical modeling of psychological processes, the design of studies, as well as the analysis and interpretation of empirical-psychological data. In other words, we develop the “tools” for describing, explaining, predicting, and possibly modifying, human experience and behavior.

Research and teaching in the field of Psychological Methodology is characterized by working at the intersection between general mathematics, statistics and the various basic and applied subjects in psychology. Often new discoveries in psychology are only made possible by new methodological developments. Thus, the subject not only plays a central role in the education of the next generation of psychologists, but offers ample opportunities for collaboration between the various fields in the life- and social sciences and beyond.
