research overview

  • I modeled a multi-level distribution of three dimensional arrays using a Bayesian approach assuming a separable covariance structure that is the sum of a set of Kronecker products. The goal was to find patterns in the covariance of the survey participant’s responses across quality measures and years to enhance public reporting and quality monitoring.
