Faglige interesser | Academic Interests

Measuring and trying to explain why people differ on basic human skills and abilities remains an intriguing topic. As a Psychometrician I am interested in all aspects of Assessment, Evaluation, and Testing, with a specific passion for the Development and Application of Latent Variable Models in a new measurement context.

My core research interests are in psychometric modelling especially in relation to modern test design including computerized adaptive testing (CAT) and strong item-level validation frameworks. In addition, I have taken an interest in exploring how to evaluate and assess the information value and data quality of international large-scale assessments in education.
