The Psychometrics Centre

Cambridge Judge Business School


Dr Ahmed Izzidien will be joining the Psychometrics Centre as a Post-Doctoral Research Associate in July 2020. He is researching artificial intelligence methods for the automatic detection of social rights and social responsibilities in data. His project is funded by a grant from the Horizon 2020 - Next Generation Internet Trust.

His research has focused on novel measurement technology and methodology. Working to interface fields from the humanities and natural sciences, he has written on the detection of social values using EEG and psychometrics. His interests include: 

  • A psychometric methodology for the detection of schemata from implicit ontological associations in texts.

  • Abstract knowledge representation in artificial intelligence (AI).

  • Interfacing AI with social values (e.g. fairness) using theories on moral and ethical cognition in humans.

Dr Izzidien has researched across several labs at Harvard (Social Cognition, Department of Psychology) and Cambridge (Social Decision-Making lab, Department of Psychology, and the Cambridge Forum for Legal and Political Philosophy, Faculty of Law).

He graduated with a BEng(Hons) King's College (University of London), an MSc University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology, an MA (co-supervised by UCLA), a Master of Philosophy (collaboration between Dept. of Clinical Neurosciences and Faculty of Divinity at the University of Cambridge), and a PhD (Cardiff). In his spare time he enjoys writing science fiction & comedy.
