Dr Igor Gomes Menezes

Biography:

Dr Menezes is a Research Associate in the Cambridge Judge Business School and a psychometrician in the Psychometrics Centre, working on a project in partnership with the Board of Studies, Teaching, and Educational Standards (BOSTES) from New South Wales, Australia. This project seeks to combine cutting edge techniques from psychometrics and machine learning to help improve the standards of achievement in NSW schools.

He has more than ten years’ experience working as a professor and researcher of quantitative methods and psychometrics and has supervised undergraduate and graduate students in different fields, such as organisational psychology, educational assessment, healthcare, and personality. His research interests include statistics, machine learning, psychometrics, computerised adaptive testing, R programming, decision-making, organisational behaviour and educational assessment.

He is currently devising a machine learning based application focused on the development of a leadership profiling which hinges on several cognitive and psychological characteristics, including decision-making, risk assessment and personality. A similar algorithm will concurrently be deployed to assess the risk of employees to leave their current organisation.

Igor was also an Academic Visitor to The Psychometrics Centre for the academic year 2013-2014 and continues to work with us on different projects.
