Professional Summary

As a quantitative research methodologist, my current research interest includes developing and evaluating methods to estimate effect size, understanding the need for multilevel modeling in education, and exploring interpretable ways to evaluate the impact of measurement non-invariance. I am also interested in collaborations in substantive areas such as addiction and child development.
