I am an Assistant Professor of Quantitative Psychology in the L. L. Thurstone Psychometric Laboratory of the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I earned by BA from the University of Notre Dame on 2012, and my PhD from Arizona State University on 2018. My graduate training was supported in part by a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship.
I’m a psychometrician by training, and I focus on how different aspects of psychological measurement affect the conclusions we make from causal models, such as statistical mediation models, and prediction models, such as machine learning models. More details are in the Research tab. I currently teach courses on machine learning and psychometrics at both the graduate and undergraduate levels. For previous syllabi of these courses, see the Classes tab. Finally, some of my papers contain supplemental information, which can be found in the Supplements tab.
