Background

I am 
an Assistant Professor in the Quantitative area in the Psychology Department
at Arizona State University. I also am a Faculty Affiliate in the Center for Developmental Science at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.

My research interests in applied statistics generally fall into four broad areas:
(1) statistical models for correlated data
(2) methods for challenging data structures, small sample sizes in particular
(3) structural equation and latent growth models
(4) applying statistical methods used in other disciplines to behavioral science problems

I completed my Ph.D. in Measurement, Statistics, and Evaluation at the University of Maryland in 2015, an MA in Measurement, Statistics, and Evaluation at the University of Maryland in 2013, and a BA in Psychology from Wesleyan University in 2011. 

Previously, I was an Assistant Professor in the Department of Methodology and Statistics at Utrecht University in the Netherlands and a Quantitative Methodologist working with the Center for Developmental Science at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.
