I am a Data Scientist with a doctorate in quantitative and social psychology. My research background is in stress, social support, and health in close relationships with a dual emphasis on substantive questions and quantitative issues.

My quantitative interests include modeling simultaneous correspondence phenomena using dyadic data, using intensive longitudinal designs to examine individual and dyad-level change, modeling functional and contextualized interdependence in dyads and groups over time, and examining & developing methods of study design, power analysis, assessment, and data analysis.

I have taught several 400-level courses on psychological measurement, with a focus on topics such as scale construction, descriptive and inferential data analysis & interpretation, scale integrity assessment, and applied testing and assessment. I have also served as a consulting data analyst, methodologist, and psychometrician for numerous academic, non-profit, and industry clients. I also have interest and expertise in issues of data collection and management, cross-platform software utilization for data management & analysis, and programming for research and data management.

I am also a past contributor to Luvze (formerly Science of Relationships) (click here to read my past SofR articles).
