Dr. Katerina Marcoulides
Dr. Marcoulides is an Associate Professor in the Quantitative & Psychometric Methods Program in the Department of Psychology at the University of Minnesota. She completed her Ph.D. in Quantitative Psychology from Arizona State University. Her research focuses on the development and application of advanced modeling and data mining approaches for the analysis of complex psychological data, and considers ways in which various substantive domains within psychology can be studied through these analytic approaches. She has developed and utilized data mining techniques to fit optimal structural equation and longitudinal models. In addition to data mining techniques, another aspect of her research is in estimation issues within structural equation modeling (SEM). She is also particularly interested in applying modeling techniques to study developmental and educational processes, with an emphasis on economically disadvantaged immigrant children. Her collaborative work with applied researchers in the Minnesota Population Center recently received 5-years of funding from the National Institute of Health to investigate the complex associations among parenting, marginalization, and well-being during COVID-19.
