Dr. ROBERTO COLOM
Professor of Psychology
Universidad Autonoma de Madrid


Researcher ID: F-8779-2010

Roberto Colom studied Psychology at the ‘Universidad Autónoma de Madrid’ where he received his PhD in 1989.
Since early in his career, Roberto was very keen to study human intelligence and he has been influenced by researchers such as Earl B. Hunt, Patrick C. Kyllonen, Hans J. Eysenck, Arthur R. Jensen, James R. Flynn, Richard J. Haier, and Paul M Thompson among many others.
He is currently Professor of Individual Differences at the Dpt. of Biological and Health Psychology in the same university, and he has been teaching undergraduate and postgraduate courses and supervising PhD students since 1990 (many of whom are now teachers and researchers).
He has authored twelve books (both technical and for a broad audience), edited six books, and published more than one hundred peer-reviewed articles.
The vast majority of his research efforts have been focused on human intelligence.
Perhaps the key feature of his history as a scientist is the large network of collaborations with research groups around the globe, including Europe, North America, South America, and Asia.
This has stimulated a broad scope of interests going from the psychometric analysis of intelligence, its cognitive foundations and, in the last decade, its biological basis (mainly through the application of innovative neuroimaging research tools).
These wide interests produced publications in scientific journals such as IntelligencePAIDNeuroImageBrainPNASHuman Brain MappingBrain Structure and FunctionMemory & CognitionJournal of AnatomySCANNeuropsychologia, and Computers and Education, to name some of them.
He has also done applied research in areas including mental disability, crime behaviour, personnel selection (ATC), and test development.
Prof Colom is on the editorial board of the journal ‘Intelligence’ since 2000 and he acts as reviewer for several scientific outlets.
He was a founding member of the Iberian-American Society for the Study of Individual Differences (1996) and served as President-Elect from 2006 to 2011.
He is a member of the International Society for Intelligence Research (ISIR) since 2000.
The mass media often request his opinion on a variety of topics, but mainly related with human intelligence.
