Dr. Geoffrey J. Iverson, Professor Emeritus at the University of California, Irvine, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in mathematical psychology.

Having excelled as a professor of cognitive sciences within the School of Social Sciences at the University of California, Irvine for three decades, Dr. Iverson was notably honored as professor emeritus in 2016. Also backed by teaching at Northwestern University, his research interests include mathematical psychology, psychophysics and statistics. To attest to his professional prowess, Dr. Iverson has served as a board member and editor of the Journal of Mathematical Psychology and is a member of the Mathematical Association of America. Civically, he supports forest and wildlife conservation organizations and women’s rights.

Dr. Iverson earned a Doctor of Philosophy in theoretical physics from the University of Adelaide in Australia in 1969, along with a Doctor of Philosophy from New York University, where he was first introduced to signal detection theory. Today, he is in the process of writing a research paper surrounding signal detection theory, which lives in the field of cognitive science and is a part of decision-making dating back to work done in the early 1950s. Widely used in psychophysical research but also memory, he is attempting to rewrite the theory and make it more up to date. The recipient of a Best Paper Award, Dr. Iverson credits his initial drive to Jean-Claude Falmagne, who he recalls had a huge influence on his development. He looks forward to continuing his research and getting published in the coming years.
