I am an Asssistant Professor in the Research, Measurement, and Evaluation Program in the Department of Educational and Psychological Studies at the University of Miami specializing in educational measurement and statistics. I joined the EPS faculty at the University of Miami in 2013. Prior to joining the EPS faculty, I received my Ph.D. in Quantitative Methods in Education program in the Department of Educational Psychology at the University of Minnesota. I held research positions with the Quantitative Methods in Education program and Office of Research and Consultation Services at the University of Minnesota, and also had the privilege of doing psychometric research at the Minneapolis Public Schools in Minnesota and ACT, Inc. in Iowa. My research interests are in three primary areas: item response theory, test score integrity, and nonlinear mixed-effects models.
