Tal Yarkoni



Tal Yarkoni received his Ph.D. in Psychology from Washington University in St. Louis in 2009. He completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Colorado Boulder. Dr. Yarkoni's research lies at the interface of psychology, neuroscience, and informatics. He is broadly interested in developing new methods to help improve the large-scale acquisition, organization, and analysis of psychological data. Areas of particular interest include (a) development of new tools for automated meta-analysis of functional neuroimaging data; (b) the cognitive and neural substrates of personality and individual differences; and (c) Big Data and machine learning applications to higher education.
