Welcome! I am an assistant professor of Quantitative Methodology at the University of Georgia. A few things about me are as follows.

 Research Interests

My research interests center on the optimal design of experimental studies, statistical power, multilevel modeling, structural equation modeling, latent variable modeling, and their application in education, psychology, and health. I am also interested in sensitivity analysis, artificial intelligence, machine learning, computational and optimization methods, causal inference, categorical data analysis, quantitative policy research, prevention science, education equity, and school psychology issues.

 Representative Publications

What Is New?

I am happy to share that I received a 2023 Early Career Award from the Society for Research on Education Effectiveness (SREE: https://www.sree.org/awards)—many thanks to the award committee, SREE, and my collaborators.
