Robert F. Krueger, Ph.D., is Hathaway Distinguished Professor of Clinical Psychology in the Department of Psychology at the University Minnesota, Twin Cities. He received a number of awards including the Distinguished Scientific Award for Early Career Contribution to Psychology from the American Psychological Association.

Dr. Krueger obtained his Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin at Madison, and completed his clinical internship at Brown University. He has served as Associate Editor of the Journal of Abnormal Psychology and the Journal of Personality, and has served on the editorial boards of a variety of other journals. His research interests reflect the breadth of human individual differences, but an important thread of his research continues to focus on pulling together ideas in the study of personality, psychopathology, personality disorders, behavior genetics, and quantitative methods to work toward an empirically-based model of personality and psychopathology. He is a member of the DSM-5 Personality and Personality Disorders Work group.
