Andre Wang


Andre is now an assistant professor of psychology at the University of Toronto. His primary research interest is understanding how people connect abstract thinking to concrete experience. In Andre’s quantitative work, he applies this interest to issues related to statistical validity and explore how researchers can connect abstract ideals of research practice to the concrete and often messy reality of doing research. Some topics he works on are identifying the benefits and costs of using covariates ("What are potential tradeoffs when researchers 'control for' a variable?"), and power analysis in structural equation models ("How do we power our studies to detect a target effect in SEM?").
