Jeremy Burrus is an associate research scientist in ETS's Center for New Constructs in the Research & Development (R&D) Division. Previously, he worked as a postdoctoral research scholar at Columbia Business School in New York City. His main research interests are in the areas of noncognitive assessments, interventions and social judgment. For example, some of his noncognitive work includes developing an intervention system designed to improve students' ability to manage their time. Furthermore, some of his research on social judgment has demonstrated that the tendency of people to form judgments egocentrically influences their level of optimism about the future and their judgments of fairness.
Burrus has published in some of the leading journals in the field of social psychology, including Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, the Journal of Experimental Social Psychology, and the Journal of Consumer Psychology.
He earned a Ph.D. in social psychology from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, in 2006.
