Research areas and activities

Research methodology and child and family studies, with emphasis on:

  • Child care, specifically interventions on sensitivity and noise in home-based and center-based care, and the ORCE (Observational Record of the Caregivining Environment; developed by the NICHD)
  • Multivariate categorical data analysis, specifically CATPCA (categorical principal components analysis)
  • Inference with categorical data (using the bootstrap and permution tests)
