General Information

We are interested in quantitative methods in social research. Currently, our lab is developing different methods for the analysis of complex effects (e.g., mediated moderation) in path analysis and structural equation modeling. This is an important topic in psychometrics because in reality, the relationship among the variables are often more complicated than expected and standard models are therefore unable to describe the underlying psychological process adequately.


Meta Analysis
Meta-analysis is becoming very popular in behavioral and medical research. We are interested in using the method in applied research to solve real problems.
