J. He


TS Social and Behavioral Sciences
Department of Methodology and Statistics


My research interests include the psychological meaning of survey response styles, values, and public opinions across cultures (countries and ethnic groups). I am especially keen in comparative quantitative research methods such as structural equation modeling, multilevel analysis, and survey development and adaptations in cross-cultural contexts.
