J. Galen Buckwalter, Ph.D.


Chief Scientific Officer at Payoff

My entrepreneurial vision has been shaped by years immersed in data attempting to advance science. I have published in Alzheimer's disease, neuropsychology, resilience, endocrinology and a wide range of health outcomes, with my overarching goal to use appropriate analytics with increasingly complex data to shed light on the functioning of multidimensional systems. I had the good fortune to work with large datasets before they were iconic. The pace of discovery from big data will increase exponentially when the analytic process is focused on complex, structured and theory-driven data. I am currently working with Scott Saunders at Payoff.com developing psychometric assessments to identify traits and characteristics that will allow a broader segment of the population to access financial services.
