Dr. Mumford offers the following to describe his areas of interest:

My interests lie in the assessment and development of high level talent. Currently, the research focuses on four specific areas. The first area is concerned with the identification and measurement of creative thinking skills. The second area focuses on those skills that leaders must possess to perform well in dynamic organizational settings. The third area examines work place structure as it relates to skill growth and development. Finally, I continue to conduct work on the potential applications of life history path as a tool for understanding career development. http://www.ou.edu/cas/psychology/people/fac/mumford.htm
