Kevin McKee

Kevin L. McKee, Ph.D. obtained his multi-disciplinary doctorate in Psychiatric, Behavioral, and Statistical Genetics at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, VA. His dissertation research focused on methodology for psychological time series and the use of genetic signals to validate theories of cognitive and behavioral processes. He specializes in using R statistical language for time series analysis, simulation, power calculation, and structural equation modeling with software such as OpenMx. Kevin has contributed to a variety of domains including algorithms and methodology, analysis of high-frequency sensor data to study anxiety and panic disorders, self-report from experience sampling studies of substance use, neuroimaging in psychiatry, and epidemiological survey data. He is interested in statistics and probability both as tools for scientific research and as models of human perception.
