I am a psychometrician/statistician and data scientist, serving as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Applied Psychology and Human Development at the University of Toronto. I am interested in applying advances from machine learning, statistics, and causal inference literature to improve research methods and practice in behavioural and social sciences. I am also interested in leveraging AI and data science to improve education assessment, research, and practice (AI in Education).


I am also an affiliated faculty member of the Collaborative Program in Neuroscience(CPIN), Center for Smart Learning and Development(CSLD), and Data Sciences Institute(DSI) here at the University of Toronto.

I received my Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley.

I am looking for highly-motivated students to join my group, especially if you are a
