About Me

Matthew Browne is a lecturer in research methods and statistics in the psychology program within the school of Health and Human Services. He also acts as consulting statistician to the Institute for Health and Social Sciences Research.

Background

Matthew completed a PhD in psychophysiology methodology in 2002, publishing several novel methods for the analysis of EEG recordings. He has since held continuing posts in major international research organizations including CSIRO and the Fraunhofer Gesslschaft (Institute for Autonomous Systems). His main interests lie in the application of statistical and machine learnings methodologies across several disciplines (but especially social science and psychology). He acts as a consulting statistician to the IHSSR, contributing to a number of projects across CQUniversity health and social sciences. He also contributes actively to research programs in the psychology of gambling, cognitive psychophysiology, and personality and attitudes.
