About Me

I am an Assistant Professor in the Educational Psychology program at the University of New Mexico. I teach courses in research methods and statistics. My research focuses on the application of quantitative methods especially in the areas of child development, parenting, and parent-child relationships. My quantitative interests include: structural equation modeling, multilevel modeling, interdependent data analysis, longitudinal data analysis, and mediation models. Currently, there are a number of overlapping themes in my research: 1) ways to reconsider time in traditional panel models, 2) mediation in longitudinal models, and 3) models for interdependent data analysis. My developmental interests focus on the parent-child relationship and the reciprocal effects that parents and children have on one another.
