I have been busy recently and couldn’t keep up with news recently, so they come in bulk!
Measurement Invariance workshop
We’re organising a workshop an measurement invariance testing in a CFA framework for categorical indicators with Terrence Jorgensen, who really is a capacity! It will take place online on Feb, 10th, 2pm CET - drop me an email if you’d like to join.
New offices, really neat. Currently torturing our brains on how to most effectively use the additional space.
Looking forward to host Conrad Harrison in 2022
Our colleague Conrad Harrison got some founding from the OX/BER Research Partnership for a short stay at our group in Berlin. We will jointly work on some analysis about plausible value imputation in clinical trials! Really looking forward to it.
