My area of research is primarily focused on latent variable modelling, particularly Structural Equation Models, Item Response Theory, finite mixtures and the design and implementation of efficient computer algorithms for purposes of Monte Carlo simulations.

I also do research on multivariate non-Gaussian distributions through the use of Copulas and Bayesian estimation methods in the social sciences.
