At the Psychological Models and Measurement Lab, we examine how the statistical models and analysis techniques used in psychological research influence the validity of the scientific inferences that researchers make. This research produces concrete tools and recommended practices to improve the quality of psychological research. We use both analytic methods and computer simulations to understand, given a specific set of population conditions and a particular methodological practice, the extent to which results and inferences are trustworthy.
Our team is led by Dr. Mijke Rhemtulla, and includes a group of graduate students with diverse interests, the occasional postdoc or visiting scholar, and undergraduate research assistants. If you are interested in joining our team, please see this page for more information.
