Research Interests

My primary quantitative research interests center around structural equation modeling (SEM) and includes measurement invariance, factor analysis, longitudinal modeling, and scale development. In addition to my work in developing and evaluating quantitative methods, I also have a strong interest in applying advanced quantitative techniques to both real world data I have collected in my own research as well as data from collaborations across several other disciplines (e.g., social psychology, personality, developmental psychology). One particular area I have strong interest in is examining individual’s attitudes toward and knowledge of science, and evaluating science education.
