Hello! My name is Minjeong (MJ) Jeon. I am an Associate Professor of Advanced Quantitative Methods at the department of Education of UCLA. Prior to coming to UCLA, I was an Assistant Professor of Quantitative Psychology at the Ohio State University (OSU). I was also affiliated with the Translational Data Analytics group at OSU. I obtained my Ph.D in Quantitative Methods and Evaluation and MA in Statistics from UC Berkeley.
My research interests are developing, applying, and estimating a variety of statistical/latent variable models, such as multilevel models, structural equation models, item response theory models, and growth models. I am also interested in developing computational algorithms and software. My recent interests include social network analysis, item response tree/process models, and joint modeling of multivariate data (such as behavior, cognitive, neural data).
I have been collaborating with researchers from various areas, including developmental/social/clinical psychology, neuroscience, educational measurement, policy, medicine, dentistry, biostatistics, and statistics.
