About Me

Welcome to my site!

I am an Assistant Professor of Psychology and my research focus is in the development and application of statistical models for clinical research, with specific applications of complex models to suicide research. This has been applied in two primary subdomains, 1) incorporating and assessing measurement error into machine learning, and 2), identifying longitudinal subtypes with machine learning. The main thesis behind these research lines is that simply applying machine learning algorithms to clinical data neglects several unique aspects of this data, thus leading to suboptimal findings.
