CAS psychology professor awarded Fulbright Grant

TAMPA, Fla. – A professor from the Department of Psychology has been awarded the Fulbright grant to teach a graduate-level course and conduct research at Middle East Technical University in Turkey.

Michael Brannick, Ph.D. will travel to travel to Ankara, Turkey during the spring of 2015. Middle East Technical University (METU) in Turkey is dedicated to research and education. Brannick will teach a meta-analysis statistics, educating students about combining statistical outcomes across different studies.

“For example, if several different scholars independently study the effectiveness of a new drug, we might combine the statistical outcomes across studies to reach a stronger conclusion than is possible through any individual study,” Brannick said.

Brannick said he does not speak Turkish, so he will spend a fair amount of time learning the language. He hopes to also meet with people from the medical school to compare medical training in Turkey with training in the United States.

“I am really excited about spending enough time in Turkey to make friends and gain a little understanding of their perspective on world events,” Brannick said.

Brannick currently works with the Center for Advanced Medical Learning and Simulation (CAMLS) in Tampa. He teaches several psychology courses at the University of South Florida.
