Research details

Since I completed my PhD in social psychology with a minor in quantitative psychology at UCLA in 2015, I served as a Postdoctoral Research Affiliate at the UCLA Center for Behavior, Evolution and Culture. My dissertation and postdoctoral work have focused on the application of molecular genetic paradigms to research on close and intimate human relationships. Through my research, I have been involved in the selection of questionnaire measures for use in research, the administration of survey measures, the cleaning, aggregation and analysis of survey data, and the presentation of research results obtained from such analyses. I have extensive experience in conducting literature reviews and in the preparation of manuscripts for publication in peer-reviewed scientific journals. Moreover, during the course of my doctoral studies, I had the opportunity to acquire substantial familiarity with a variety of methods for survey construction and analysis. I have extensive experience with common applications of the General Linear Model in a variety of survey research contexts. I also have experience using more complex methods, such as multilevel modeling.
