I am an assistant professor in the Research Methodology, Measurement, and Statistics program within the Department of Educational Psychology at the University of North Texas. I have a background in Information Systems, and in my downtime, I enjoy using my computing skills to develop statistical tools for applied researchers.

- Applied Bayesian data analysis
- Multilevel, psychometric, and covariance structure models and their interconnections
- Communicating statistical findings & effect sizes
- Statistical software development

- PhD Educational Studies, Ohio State University (2021)
- MS Information Systems, National Tsing Hua University (2016)
- BS Information Systems, American University of Nigeria (2012)

I am also a member of the Texas State Employees Union (Communication Workers of America, Local 6186). TSEU is a union for everyone who works for the state of Texas.

I usually teach regression (fall), structural equation modeling (spring), and simulation (some Falls). And I should teach an applied Bayesian course in the near future.
