Academic interests

Currently I am working with estimation of latent variable models such as item response theory and structural equation models with specific application to large-scale assessment programs. I am also involved in research on equating/linking in educational assessment and various applications in education, gerontology and psychology. In addition, I am the maintainer of the R package kequate which implements the kernel method of test equating in an open source software package.


Prior to joining CEMO I was a post-doctoral researcher at the Collaborative Innovation Center of Assessment towards Basic Education Quality at Beijing Normal University where I worked on improving the NAEQ, a large-scale Chinese assessment of basic education quality.
