# Overview

I am the dean's associate professor of the college of liberal arts in the departments of Sociology and Statistics (by courtesy) at Purdue University. I am also a founder and co-director of the The Methodology Center at Purdue and a founder and co-director of the Kernan Experimental Social Science Lab. I am a quantitative methodologist specializing in categorical data analysis, data visualization, latent variable modeling, and experimental design. I am also a social psychologist and use theories of identity, status, and stereotyping to understand (a) how social categories impact how we view ourselves and how others view and treat us, and (b) the social factors that influence health and well-being. I teach courses and short workshops on applied statistics, quantitative methods, and social psychology.

I am firmly committed to open science and reproducibility. Thus, I freely share the data, code, and replication files for all of my research projects as well as for all courses, seminars, and workshops I teach.

The various pages on this site contain:

- Description of my background and research

- My CV

- Copies of my published articles along with abstracts, replication files, online appendices, etc.
