I am a quantitative psychologist and a psychometrician. In other words, I'm someone who's interested in designing and conducting psychological research and designing/critiquing psychological and educational tests.
I earned a B.S. in psychology from Brigham Young University in 2007. In 2009, I earned a graduate certificate in education and social science advanced research methods from Texas A&M University. Finally, in 2011, I earned a Ph.D. in educational psychology (with an emphasis in research, measurement, and statistics) from Texas A&M University.
Teaching and Research Interests:
I see teaching and research as inextricably linked. I like to write research articles that teach readers about statistical methods and psychological testing. I also enjoy bringing real-life research examples into my classes and to have students work on research projects—mine or their own. I am most interested in conducting research on testing, statistical methods, and intelligence. If you are interested in joining my research team or receiving guidance for your own project, let me know.
