Cameron (he/him) is a doctoral candidate studying personality and social psychology at the University of Oregon. Before beginning his doctoral studies, Cameron completed a Master of Science in Psychology at the University of Oregon, a Master of Arts in Journalism at the University of Oregon, and a Bachelor of Arts at the University of British Columbia.
Despite a broad interest in many different areas of psychology, Cameron’s core research interests focus on abnormal personality traits and unconventional beliefs. With respect to the former, Cameron is interested in the potential adaptive benefits of aversive personality traits (e.g., Machiavellianism, narcissism, and psychopathy), as well as how these traits interact with perceptions of morality. Concerning the latter, Cameron is interested in the aspects of personality that underlie the tendency to believe in conspiracy theories.
Cameron is also interested in incorporating new technologies and methodologies into the study of personality. He is the creator and maintainer of the R packages panoply, quickselect, and iccImpact, as well as the outRun RStudio Editor Theme.
