James E Pustejovsky
James Pustejovsky is a statistician with interests in meta-analysis, causal inference, robust inference, and statistical methods for single-case experimental designs. His recent work has involved developing methods for hypothesis tests based on cluster-robust variance estimation; methods for effect size estimation in single-case research designs; and statistical models for behavioral observation data. He teaches graduate courses in research design, analysis of experimental data, causal inference, and data analysis using R.
Ph.D. in Statistics, Northwestern University, 2013
B.A. in Economics, Boston College, 2003
Interests include meta-analysis, causal inference, robust inference, statistical methods for of single-case research designs, experimental design, and statistical models for behavioral data.
