Lijin Zhang

Welcome to my website! I am a Ph.D. student in Developmental and Psychological Science at Stanford University, advised by Professors Ben Domingue and Jason Yeatman.

Prior to Stanford, I have worked on Bayesian analysis, structural equation modeling, and network analysis with Professors Junhao Pan, Edward Ip, Xinya Liang, and Johnny Zhang.

Research Interests

My area of research centers around psychometrics and quantitative methods. My focus is on evaluating and enhancing the generalizability of structural equation models. Additionally, I have delved into detecting model violations, such as local dependence, in measurement models, primarily using the Bayesian Lasso. I am also keen to explore a variety of statistical techniques for psychological and educational research, such as network analysis and item response models.
