Research Interests

My current research concerns three lines of work:

(1) Combinatorial data analysis of individual differences based on multiple proximity matrices observed from different data sources (e.g., subjects, experimental conditions, time points);

(2) Large-scale nonmodel-based clustering, with particular focus on the p-median model;

(3) Cognitively Diagnostic Modeling
