Dr. Mariola Moeyaert joined the faculty of Educational Psychology and Methodology in the Fall of 2015. She received her PhD from the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (KU Leuven) in Belgium and worked as a Postdoctoral fellow at the Center of Advanced Study in Education at the City University of New York. Her major research interests and publications are in the field of multilevel analysis, meta-analysis and single-case experimental data. She is also interested in Bayesian statistics, bootstrapping, structural equation modeling, longitudinal data analysis, and international comparative research. She (co)authored about 20 international publications, in such journals as Psychological Methods, Mutlivariate Behavior Research, Journal of School Psychology, Behavior Research Methods, School Psychology Quarterly, etc., reporting about developments in research methodology (including several extensive simulation studies) and about applications of statistical models on educational data. Currently, she is involved as Co-PI in a research project funded by the Institute of Educational Sciences titled “Multilevel Modeling of single-subject experimental data: Handling data and design complexities”.
