Personal Biography

Meredith Frey is an associate professor and experimental/quantitative psychologist with research interests in human intelligence. Two basic questions guide her work: 1) Why are some people more intelligent than others, and 2) How can we fairly measure intelligence, without also measuring learned information? She has received a grant from the U. S. Army Research Institute to develop a battery of fairly simple reaction time tasks that can be used to predict complex outcomes, like academic achievement or job performance, and can be used in place of traditional, more culturally laden, assessments. Dr. Frey teaches classes in Research Methods, Statistics, General Psychology, and Intelligence. Dr. Frey received the 2009 New Teacher of the Year award.
