Ken Kelley is the Edward F. Sorin Society Professor of IT, Analytics, and Operations (ITAO) and the Associate Dean for Faculty and Research in the Mendoza College of Business at the University of Notre Dame. Professor Kelley is in the analytics group within the ITAO Department and works to advance analytic methods. In particular, his work focuses on the development, improvement, and evaluation of statistical methods for psychological, behavioral, and social data. Professor Kelley’s specialties are in the areas of designing studies and analyzing data, particularly effect size estimation and confidence interval formation, longitudinal data analysis, and statistical computing. In addition to his methodological work, Professor Kelley collaborates on a variety of important topics developing new and applying existing but non-standard methods to a variety of areas in business and psychology. Professor Kelley is an Accredited Professional Statistician™ (PStat®) by the American Statistical Association, former associate editor of Psychological Methods, recipient of the Anne Anastasi early career award by the American Psychological Association's Division of Evaluation, Measurement, & Statistics, an elected member of the Society of Multivariate Experimental Psychology, and a fellow of the American Psychological Association.
