I am an Assistant Professor in Measurement, Statistics and Evaluation in the Department of Human Development and Quantitative Methodology at the University of Maryland. Prior to this appointment, I was in the Department of Statistics at Carnegie Mellon University as a postdoctoral fellow. My degrees include Ph.D. and M.S. in Statistics from Carnegie Mellon University and M.A. in Mathematics from Morgan State University. I also taught high school mathematics for Baltimore County Public Schools.
My research focuses on developing multilevel statistical social network models and on models for interventions on social networks in particular. I am also interested in statistical methodology for large-scale educational interventions and recently started studying teacher rating models.
