I am interested in the theory and application of psychometric methods (e.g., IRT and latent variable models) in education and psychology. I am working with Dr. James Wollack. My research focuses on (1) statistical modeling of anomalous testing taking behavior in educational and psychological measurement and (2) psychometric methodologies for the item- and person-level anomaly detection in the form of test collusion and item preknowledge as well as their potential to provide insight into valid and fair testing.
