Research Areas:

Quantitative Psychology & Modelling

Research Summary:

My research interests revolve around mediation analysis and Bayesian methods applied to social science research. More specifically, I have three research lines that focus on: 1) optimal methods for using historical data and pilot studies to create informative prior distributions for Bayesian mediation analysis, 2) methods for synthesizing findings about the mediated effect in the presence of important between-study differences (e.g., samples from different populations), and 3) mediation analysis in Single Case Experimental Designs (SCEDs). These methods have broad applications in psychology and related fields.

I am accepting graduate student applications for the Fall 2020 year (due on December 1st, 2019).
