# Ed Merkle: Psychometrics/Statistics/Computing/Quantitative Psychology

My research involves a mix of psychometric modeling, statistical modeling, and the experimentation/modeling that arises from cognitive science and mathematical psychology. Specific research interests include

Bayesian latent variable models

Forecasting and subjective probability: Aggregation, evaluation, crowdsourcing/wisdom of crowds

Psychometric measurement: Test/item bias and fairness

Statistical modeling: Estimation, selection, software

I am currently a professor at the University of Missouri, with primary affiliation in the Department of Psychological Sciences and adjunct affiliation in the Department of Statistics. I have published some papers in good journals and been involved in some big grants, and my code can be found in some beloved R packages. For papers, see the link at top. You might also look at:
