Dr. Samantha Anderson

Assistant Professor

Samantha F. Anderson is an Assistant Professor of Psychology at Arizona State University, focusing on Quantitative Methods. Broadly speaking, her research investigates questions pertaining to research design and meta-science, with a focus on developing approaches that are both rigorous and practical. More specifically, her work centers on the following themes: sample size planning for high statistical power, methods for addressing replication, the impact of multiplicity on Type I error rates and power, and missing data in causal inference. In an effort to make her work accessible and user-friendly, she has co-developed open-source software for conducting sample size planning, available at https://designingexperiments.com/shiny-r-web-apps/ under the heading “Bias and Uncertainty Corrected Sample Size for Power”.
