Research interests

My research interests concern application of Bayesian approach and new statistical methods in psychology. In particular:

  • Bayesian model comparison to evaluate and compare informative hypotheses.
  • Formalization of models and prior distributions according to theoretical and research hypotheses.
  • Elicitation of experts’ knowledge to formalize priors about effects of interest.
  • Evaluation of statistical inference errors in the case of underpowered studies (small sample size).
  • Use of STAN programming language for Bayesian analysis.
