Teaching & Research Interests

My research revolves around developing, applying, and estimating a variety of latent variable models for studying measurement and growth. I also have a keen interest in developing efficient computational algorithms and software packages. My recent research topics include respondent-item network analysis, dynamic feedback process modeling, and joint modeling of behavioral and biological process data.
