About

Professor Marley is an internationally recognized scholar in mathematical psychology who has made significant contributions to the mathematical behavioral and social sciences. He has been involved in much international collaboration with academics in psychology, mathematics, statistics, marketing and political science, resulting in publications in psychophysics, utility theory, probabilistic choice and measurement theory and methods. Professor Marley was the Head of the Psychology Department at McGill University in Canada, long regarded as a leader in psychology. He wrote the well‐received Choice, Decision and Measurement: Essays in Honor of R. Duncan Luce (Erlbaum 1997) and co-authored Behavioural Social Science (Cambridge University Press 2006), which has impacted on theoretical and empirical studies of the aggregation of individual preferences. Most recently, he has co-authored Best-Worst Scaling: Theory and Application (Cambridge University Press, 2015). Professor Marley has been President of the Society for Mathematical Psychology and Editor of the Journal of Mathematical Psychology.
