With broad training in both quantitative psychology and statistics and years of experience in educational measurement, my research interests span multiple disciplines, crossing theoretical advances with practical applications.
I am primarily interested in methodological issues in psychometrics, with latent variable modeling, latent class analysis, and mixed-effects models being the main focus of my current quantitative research program.
Empirically, I am interested in the assessment, treatment, and etiology of pathological gambling and psychological disorders in general. I also have empirical interests large scale and formative educational testing. My recent work has been to integrate methodological research into avenues for harnessing the information in big data.
Currently, I have many projects ongoing in a broad set of research areas including:
- Educational Measurement
- Diagnostic Assessment/Cognitive Diagnosis
- Estimation and Optimization
- Sports Forecasting
- Latent Variable Models
- Bayesian Statistics
The pages in this portion of my website are meant to help better disseminate the work I have done.
