Kevin Petway (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Kevin is a fifth-year doctoral student in the quantitative psychology program. His research has focused his quantitative knowledge into several areas: regression, factor analysis, structural equation modeling, missing data analysis with full information maximum likelihood, categorical data analysis, item response theory, and longitudinal data analysis. His recent work involves adaptive testing with non-cognitive constructs, and longitudinal modeling of these types of constructs in adolescents. Kevin regularly uses the programs R, Mplus, SAS, SPSS, and Matlab, and is familiar with Amos and Stata.
Adela "Addie" Timmons (email@example.com)
Addie is a second-year doctoral student in the clinical and quantitative psychology programs. Her areas of quantitative knowledge include regression, ANOVA, bootstrap methods for testing mediation, multilevel modeling (aka hierarchical linear modeling), confirmatory factor analysis, structural equation modeling, and missing data analysis (multiple imputation and full information maximum likelihood). Her work focuses on family conflict and developmental outcomes in adolescence, with an emphasis on multilevel modeling applications of diary data. Addie regularly uses the programs R, Mplus, SAS, and SPSS, and is familiar with LISREL.
