I would be pleased to talk to students interested in modelling individual and social data using latent variable methods, such as multilevel and structural equation models.
Projects on modelling beliefs and attitudes and ones on modelling change over time would be particularly welcome.
I'm a lecturer in the Social Statistics discipline area in the School of Social Sciences, and a member of the Cathie Marsh Institute for Social Research. I've been at the University of Manchester since 2004, previously I was an applied / occupational psychologist at City and Hull Universities.
I am interested in the modelling of complex psychosocial systems, attempting to describe and understand the circumstances, attitudes and behaviours of individuals in their social environment. I'm particularly interested in the application of these methods to issues of serious mental health and social enfranchisement.
Latent Variable modelling
I specialize in statistical analysis using latent variables. This provides a way of studying many of the important aspects of psychosocial systems that aren't directly observable or measurable. Common terms such as 'mental health', 'social capital' and 'ethnicity' actually describe latent variables, hypothetical constructs that we use to make sense of the things we do see in the world around us.
Specifically, I use general latent variable modelling software (e.g. gllamm, Mplus) to fit:
