My substantive area of research is how methods and statistical analyses can be improved or applied to questions in children’s development, where I am specifically interested in the areas of reading, language, and math. . I have worked on funded projects across the IES project types. For exploration type projects. In addition to my role as a methodologist, I am also focused on improving the practices of education researchers, encouraging transparency in science, and improving education researchers’ statistical conclusion validity. My methodological publications are specifically written to speak to the needs of education researchers as they plan their studies or model their data.
