Bio

My research interests are in the intersection of statistics, behavior, and public health. I hold a Master's of Public Health in Biostatistics and a PhD in Quantitative Psychology. My statistical interests are in longitudinal design and related methodology; specifically accelerated longitudinal designs and their estimation using mixed models. I also have an interest in the principal set of methods used to analyze ‘big data’ (i.e. Statistical/Machine Learning) and how exploratory techniques reconcile with confirmatory hypothesis testing.
