David Lubinski

Professor of Psychology and Human Development
Co-Director, Study of Mathematically Precocious Youth (SMPY)
Investigator, Vanderbilt Kennedy Center for Research on Human Development

Professor Lubinski's interests are concentrated on psychological measurement and assessing individual differences in human behavior. Using longitudinal methods, his empirical research is focused on the identification of different types of intellectually precocious youth and the conditions for enhancing their learning, work performance, and creativity. With Camilla Benbow, he co-directs the Study of Mathematically Precocious Youth (SMPY), a longitudinal study of over 5000 intellectually talented participants, initially identified before age 13. His framework for studying talent development is best described in Lubinski and Benbow (2000, 2006) and his psychological orientation is found in Lubinski (1996, 2000, 2004).
