    Research Area: Quantitative Methods

    Quantitative methods, flynn effect, child behavior problems

    At Vanderbilt University my substantive research has been on the gradual rise in population IQ scores over time, i.e. the Flynn Effect. Methodologically I am particularly interested in multilevel models, longitudinal studies and sibling studies. With my advisor, Dr. Joe Rodgers, I have been working on research in these areas.

    Prior to attending Vanderbilt I worked as a research assistant at the Youth with Problematic Sexual Behaviors (YPSB) lab and the Teacher Child Interaction Training (TCIT) lab located at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center-Center on Child Abuse and Neglect. My primary responsibilities were data management and analysis.
