Dr. Peter Gordon, a Professor of Cognitive Psychology, is the recipient of the 2015 James McKeen Cattell Award.

The Cattell Award provides funds to psychologists to supplement the regular sabbatical allowances provided by home institutions.

The Cattell Award will fund Dr. Gordon’s development of novel computational models and data-analytic methods that aim to increase understanding of individual differences in reading and to deepen understanding of the cognitive abilities that allow children to learn to read. The work will primarily be done in Dr. Shrikanth Narayanan’s Signal Analysis and Interpretation Lab in the Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Southern California, though it will also involve collaboration with Dr. Keith Holyoak in the Psychology Department at UCLA.
