I am an assistant professor at the Psychological Methods department. I received my PhD in 2019, for my dissertation on the interpretation of psychometric models.
My research interest lies at the intersection of psychological methods, statistics and philosophy. Some examples of questions that I have worked on: What are the implications of interpreting psychometric models as causal models or as summaries of the data? Are equivalent models the same model? What are possible chance experiments that result in the response variables in a factor model or IRT model being ‘random variables’? What is actually ‘observed’ in ‘observed variables’?
