My research focuses on developing statistical methodology for multivariate data in the social, health, and behavioral sciences. In particularly, I am interested in the development and application of statistical models that allow researchers to capture population heterogeneity; such models are known as mixture or latent variable or random effects models, depending on the field, and include mixed membership, latent Dirichlet allocation, and hierarchical models as examples.
