Research Interests

Educational psychology, learning disabilities, quantitative methods and research design, reading and language comprehension.

Current Research

Individual differences in reading skill development. Specifically, I am interested in the identification of skills that are related to the acquisition of reading ability and the use of these skills to identify children who are at-risk for early reading problems. I also have a strong interest in research design, measurement, and statistical methodology with a particular focus on multi-level modeling and item response theory.
