Myles-Jay Linton joined us in July 2012 as a Summer Intern at the University of Cambridge Psychometrics Centre. Drawing on practical experience from the field of Occupational Psychology, his main interest lies in the development of psychometric selection techniques.
Myles-Jay is currently undertaking his industrial placement year while studying at the University of Surrey for his BSc Psychology. Prior to his appointment at the University of Cambridge, he spent a year as a Research Assistant in the Human Factors department of RSSB, a centre of excellence for railway research. There his work focused on assessing the face validity of selection tests for safety critical roles and co-delivering training on Human Factors Awareness for incident investigators. He also undertook research on the various sub-factors of organisational safety culture, with a focus on how organisations learnt from their mistakes.

During his Summer Internship Myles-Jay will be developing tests on the Concerto testing platform and contributing research on subjective well-being to the MyPersonality project.
