With a grant from the Eric and Wendy Schmidt Transformative Technology Fund, a team of psychology professors will seek to build a powerful online research platform, accessible through a cellphone app, to connect investigators with volunteers located around the world.

The team consists of Sachiko Datta, postdoctoral research associate in psychology, Nicole Shelton, the Stuart Professor of Psychology, and Stacey Sinclair, professor of psychology and public affairs, and Diana Tamir, assistant professor of psychology.

The platform will be designed to boost the diversity and number of participants in a given study, and help investigators combine data from multiple studies. The researchers hope that the ability to obtain quality data from subjects around the world may help improve the reproducibility of psychology research.
