Measuring tools laid out over a map

Psychometrics & Measurement Lab


The Psychometrics & Measurement Lab is directed by Dr Silia Vitoratou and Prof Andrew Pickles. Research in the Lab focuses on the methodology and applications of psychometrics, psychological measurement, mathematical psychology, and social statistics. In the Lab, a multidisciplinary group of researchers with background in statistics, mathematics, psychology, psychiatry, and neuropsychology provides methodological support across the IoPPN and to external collaborators.

Methodologists affiliated with the Lab lead the statistical analysis in a number of important projects, some listed here. The Lab initiated also the Misophonia Clinical Academic Research Group (mCARG).

The Lab has offered and often advertises projects related to psychometrics for undergraduate and postgraduate IoPPN students, placement job positions, research assistant posts, and also hosts pre-doctoral, DClinPSy and PhD researchers (please visit the Student’s page for details).

The Lab also unites researchers across King’s College London who work in psychometrics through the IoPPN Psychometrics Community. If you are affiliated with the College and your research involves psychometrics (developing PROMs or PREMs or other psychometric scales, applying or developing latent variable models and relevant software), or you are interested in the field in general, you are welcome to join our community by enrolling to our webpage on KEATS.

The research is part funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Biomedical Research Centre at South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust and King’s College London. The views expressed are not necessarily those of the NHS, the NIHR or the Department of Health.
