I am an Assistant Professor in the Measurement, Statistics and Evaluation program in the Department of Human Development and Quantitative Methodology at the University of Maryland. My research focuses on statistical social network models and education and social science applications. In general, I’m interested in education statistics and methodology.
I completed my graduate work as well as a postdoctoral fellowship in the Department of Statistics at Carnegie Mellon University where I worked with Brian Junker. My dissertation, “Statistical Network Models for Replications and Experimental Interventions” led to an IES grant which funded my postdoc.
The grant and on-going research with Brian Junker and Andrew C. Thomas is summarized nicely here: http://hnm.stat.cmu.edu. We will also be conducting two workshops at both the Spring 2014 SREE conference and the 2014 Psychometric Society Annual Conference.
