My methodological interests have evolved along three inter-related lines: (1) Bayesian methods and statistical computing; (2) longitudinal data analysis and time series analysis; and (3) study design and sample size determination. From a substantive perspective, I am interested in applying quantitative methods in developmental, clinical, cognitive, educational, and health research. Specifically, I focus on developing and applying appropriate Bayesian, longitudinal, and time series models and developing applicable statistical methods for analyzing various complex data and facilitating study design.
