Background


I am an Assistant Professor in the Quantitative area in the Psychology Department at Arizona State University where I am the director of the Mixed Effects Modeling LabI 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 and dependent data 
(2) methods for small sample sand missing data
(3) structural equation and latent growth models
(4) novel uses for existing methods for behavioral science problems

My research has been acknowledged with the 2018 American Psychological Association Division 5 Anne Anastasi Dissertation Award and elected membership into the Society of Multivariate Experimental Psychology (SMEP). I also serve on the editorial board of Organizational Research Methods.
