Brett Buttliere, M.Sc.

Member of the Knowledge Exchange Lab

Since the beginning of 2015, Brett Buttliere has been working as a research assistant under Prof. Dr. Dr. Friedrich W. Hesse and Dr. Jürgen Buder in the Knowledge Exchange Lab to investigate online knowledge exchange, and especially the role that cognitive conflict plays in this process. Most generally, the goal of his research is to develop and apply fundamental psychological technologies to help individuals lead better lives (e.g., trying to improve the efficiency of science, understanding and reducing extremism, elucidating the similarities and differences between humans and animals).

Brett Buttliere earned his Master’s degree from Tilburg University under Dr. Jelte Wicherts; the project focused on what psychologists feel are the most important problems to solve about the peer review system and how to best fix them. His Bachelor’s degree was received from Bradley University. While he was at Bradley University, he was first membership development and then the vice president of service, for first a regional and then national award winning Psi Chi chapter (International Honor Society in Psychology). He is an alumni ambassador for Tilburg University and plays an active role in the Bradley University Psychology Alumni Association.
