Research Statement

My methodological research interests are in the theory and application of psychometric methods in the educational, social and health sciences. I am especially interested in the application of latent variable models for purposes of test validation, assessment of individual differences (such as response styles), and the modeling of growth/change.  Recent interests include multidimensional item response theory (MIRT) applications to novel item formats such as in computer-based assessments. I also provide consultation on the application of statistical methods across a broad range of applications in the social sciences.
