Biography

Richard Lamb came to University at Buffalo after attending graduate school at George Mason University where he studied Science Education and Educational Measurement. Dr. Lamb’s research focuses broadly on identification and measurement of cognitive processes used during the learning of science. His recent work is interdisciplinary and has drawn from educational neuroscience and neuropsychology along with psychometric theory to examine some of the factors which may impede or enable learning. These include computational modeling of student cognitive processes, measurement of affective dispositions, and identification of physiological systems associated with learning across the lifespan.
