J. Galen Buckwalter, PhD, is a research scientist and entrepreneur. His research career is marked by the development of numerous assessments of cognitive and psychological characteristics. He first applied this expertise online by developing and validating the questionnaire and matching model for eHarmony.com. Upon leaving eHarmony, he began to invest in and advise startup companies. With Vamsee Nalamothu, he recently co-founded TidePool.co, a cutting edge startup quantifying cognition and personality through game play. He continues academic research at the Institute for Creative Technologies at USC where he is funded by the Army and Navy to develop advanced resilience training methods. Cumulatively, Dr. Buckwalter is working with several groups to develop assessment, training and data analytic techniques to test a novel multi-dimensional hypothesis of resilience with the end goal of marketing functional products to consumers.
