Keith Burt

Assistant Professor of Psychology

Keith Burt, Assistant Professor of Psychology, received his B.A. (1998) from Pomona College in Psychology, and an M.Phil. (1999) in Social and Developmental Psychology from the University of Cambridge, England. He received his M.A. (2006) from the Institute of Child Development, University of Minnesota, where he will receive his Ph.D. in Child and Clinical Psychology (fall 2007) following completion of clinical internship at Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota.

Burt's research interests focus on risk and resilience in youth, particularly in the transition years of adolescence and young adulthood. He is also interested in the implications of a developmental perspective on psychopathology, especially concerning methodological issues in clinical research such as classification of mental illness. His research has examined the interrelations of broad competence domains (e.g., academics, social relationships) and psychopathology symptoms over time, as well as the utility of continuous dimensional models of mental illness as alternatives to the current categorical DSM system. His teaching interests include child clinical psychology, statistics, risk and resilience, and psychometrics.
