Richard M. Golden
Richard Golden is Professor of Cognitive Science in the
School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences
and Participating Faculty Member in the Erik Jonsson
School of Engineering and Computer Science
at the University of Texas at Dallas.
Professor Golden is the Director of the
COgnitive INformatics and Statistics laboratory .
Cognitive Informatics is the multidisciplinary study, design, development, and evaluation of
intelligent information processing systems using theory, knowledge, and methods from multiple fields,
including cognitive science, psychology, neuroscience, machine learning, mathematical statistics,
usability engineering, and computer science.
Professor Golden's current research focus
is concerned with the development of new educational technologies incorporating recent advances in psychometrics
and statistical machine learning for the purpose of improving the quality of personalized instruction and personalized
assessment using Artificial Intelligence (AI).

Professor Golden is
Program Head of the
Undergraduate Cognitive Science Program
and Program Head of the
Graduate Applied Cognition and Neuroscience Program .
Students interested in the Masters Program in Applied Cognition and Neuroscience (ACN)
as well as undergraduate Cognitive Science students will find the
November 2020 ACN Orientation presentation
filled with useful information about Cognitive Science related
career paths and opportunities.
Finally, feel free to connect up with
Professor Golden on LinkedIn . Many of the graduates from our undergraduate Cognitive Science
and graduate Applied Cognition and Neuroscience programs are hooked-up via LinkedIn with Professor Golden
so this is a great way to "network" with alumni of our programs!!!
