Research Summary:

Professor Gu is generally interested in the development and applications of the state space methods in educational and psychological research. Particularly, he currently focuses on (1) the study of mediation by means of state space model; (2) the state space approach to analyze multilevel data; and (3) the goodness-of-fit of state space model using the bootstrapping techniques.
