Learning Cognition & Development (LCD) Lab

My name is Charlie Fitzsimmons and I lead the Learning, Cognition, and Development (LCD) lab in the Department of Psychology at the University of North Florida. You can find my academic CV here.

I also offer private research and statistical consulting services.

About the LCD lab

Research in the LCD lab examines the way children and adults learn, think, and solve problems across the lifespan. Broadly, research focuses on three, often interrelated and overlapping areas: (1) whether and how people understand health communications and how that impacts their risk perceptions and health decisions, (2) the way people self-direct their own learning, whether they know the things they don't know, and whether their awareness of their own knowledge and understanding can be improved, and (3) the heuristics and biases people have about numbers.  

One of the ultimate goals of my work is to investigate ways to intervene and improve peoples understanding, their self-regulated learning, and their thoughts and beliefs about numbers and math.

Consulting Services

I also offer end-to-end research consulting. My consulting services vary by customer but can include: developing of research designs, identifying and implementing methods to answer questions, developing surveys and questionnaires, recruiting participants and providing data quality control checks, analyzing data, and providing clear, easy-to-understand interpretations of results for actionable insights.
