I obtained a master’s degree in Program Evaluation in 2003 and a Ph.D. in Quantitative Methods in 2005 from the Quantitative Methods Program of the Department of Educational Psychology at The University of Texas at Austin. The research for my master’s report was about missing data analysis (more specifically, multiple imputation) and it was published in the article “The performance of multiple imputation for Likert-type items with missing data“. My doctoral dissertation research was about multivariate latent growth models, and it was published in the article “A comparison of latent growth models for constructs measured by multiple Items“. In the fall of 2005, I joined the Faculty of the Research and Evaluation Methodology Program of College of Education at University of Florida. I currently teach Structural Equation Modeling, Advanced Topics in Structural Equation Modeling, Multilevel Modeling, Quasi-Experimental Design and Analysis in Education, and Survey Design and Analysis in Education. The courses I teach are closely aligned with my research focus on structural equation modeling, multilevel modeling, propensity score methods, and analysis of complex survey data. I also work as the program evaluator for several grant-funded projects at the Lastinger Center for Learning.
