Dr Robert Buckingham started at CSU in 2007. His research interests fall within the general area of individual difference with particular focus on:
- Pavlovian temperament theory
- The biological basis of personality
- The personality psychopathology continuum
Robert is currently conducting research on the Eysenckian dimensions which explores the relationship between personality and psychophysiological measures of arousal and reactivity. He is also supervising research looking at the relationship between psychoticism and digit ratio (2D:4D).
- Psychological testing
- Personality psychology
- Supervison of student research
Research interests fall within the general area of individual differences. I am particularly interested in Pavlovian temperament theory, biologically based accounts of personality, the personality psychopathology continuum and the relationship between personality and intelligence.
