Short Bio
My expertise encompasses two major areas. First, I specialize in Applied Linguistics. Second, I have expertise in advanced quantitative research methods. In my first capacity, I am interested in the psychometric properties, and statistical modeling of language proficiency tests. In my second capacity, I am interested in conducting innovative research on reforming fundamental methods of quantitative research in education and second language acquisition research.
