UVA Fellow Speaker

I am a doctoral student at the University of Virginia under the supervision of Hudson Golino. My research interests focus on network psychometrics, latent variable modeling, and multilevel modeling. I received a bachelor's in Psychology and a bachelor's in Music Performance from the University of North Texas and a master's in Psychology from the University of Virginia. In my master's thesis, I designed a method for optimizing the Walktrap algorithm, a method used for community detection within Exploratory Graph Analysis (EGA). My current work concentrates on creating methods for testing measurement invariance in the network psychometric framework, specifically EGA. Currently, under the supervision of Hudson Golino, I have been devising a method for cross-sectional data that overcomes shortcomings of measurement invariance in traditional statistical modeling (e.g., identifying referent indicators, low power for unequal group sample sizes). My dissertation work will expand this model to include additional groups and longitudinal measurement.
