I am a quantitative psychologist with expertise in longitudinal latent variable models, measurement, statistical programming and lifespan development. My research program and training focus on the modeling of repeated multivariate measurement, including the modeling of mixtures of cross-sectional and longitudinal data proposed in this study.
