김수영 프로필 사진
Su-Young Kim is an associate professor in the area of Psychometrics and Research Methods in the Department of Psychology. 
He studied Applied Statistics in Yonsei University, and completed his Ph.D. in the Quantitative Methods program of Educational Psychology department in the University of Wisconsin-Madison. 
He has focused on the development and application of latent variable models within the framework of structural equation modeling (SEM). 
His research interests revolve around developing and studying models in the SEM framework, such as latent growth models (LGMs), finite mixture models, multilevel models, item response theory (IRT), and Bayesian estimation. Particularly, his interest was to analyze multiphase longitudinal data which have salient transition or reflection points due to interventions or natural transitions in the process (e.g., multiple math tests during both middle and high schools or depression levels before and after an intervention). Three publications with multiphase GMMs in a row have been published at the Structural Equation Modeling: A Multidisciplinary Journal, which is the top ranked journal in the social sciences methods field in terms of the citation index. He has also worked on the topics of studying multidimensional IRT models in the SEM framework, multigroup LGMs with incomplete data structures, and so forth. Those works have been published in several renowned methods journals, such as Multivariate Behavioral Research and British Journal of Mathematical and Statistical Psychology. Recently, he is very interested in the LGMs with non-normal indicators, such as ordered categorical variables and (zero-inflated) count variables, and also in application of Bayesian estimation of the growth models with those types of indicator variables.
