Overview

My research focuses on psychometrics (e.g., confirmatory factor analysis, item response theory, latent class analysis), as well as statistical methods for complex and technology-enhanced educational assessments. My work has been published in methodological journals including Psychometrika, Structural Equation Modeling, and Multivariate Behavioral Research, as well as general interest journals including Educational Researcher. Notable funding sources include NAEd / Spencer Foundation (Postdoctoral Fellowship); the Statistics and Research Methodology Program of the Institute of Education Sciences (Early Career Grant); and the Natural Science and Engineering Council of Canada (Postdoctoral Fellowship). Please see my CV for further information.
