Jee-Seon Kim is a Professor in the Department of Educational Psychology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Dr. Kim received her BS and MS in Statistics and Ph.D. in Quantitative Psychology. Her research focuses on the development and application of statistical methods for addressing empirical questions in the social and behavioral sciences. Dr. Kim is particularly interested in multilevel modeling, latent variable modeling, causal inference, and unobserved heterogeneity, including methods for modeling change, learning, and human development using longitudinal data and estimating treatment effects and individual differences with clustered observational data using machine learning algorithms.
