About Dr. Lorey A. Wheeler
Dr. Lorey Wheeler is currently the Co-Director of the Nebraska Academy for Methodology, Analytics & Psychometrics and an Associate Research Professor in the Nebraska Center for Research on Children, Youth, Families and Schools at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Prior to coming to UNL, Dr. Wheeler had over 10 years of methodological and data management experience for the Arizona State University (ASU) Prevention Research Center for multiple federally-funded community-based intervention trials and basic research studies of children and families under stressful conditions. She received her masters and doctorate in family and human development with an emphasis in quantitative methodology from ASU. Dr. Wheeler’s collaborative research program focuses on the role of family and context in individual development, including outcomes related to interpersonal relationships, psychosocial adjustment, physical health, and educational and occupational outcomes among ethnic minority and understudied populations, particularly those of Mexican origin. A second focus of her research pertains to complex research designs and statistical models used to answer questions about ecological, developmental, and relational phenomena, evaluation of intervention and prevention programs, and the translation of these methods into useful tools for researchers. Her methodological expertise includes data management, experimental designs, longitudinal and dyadic data, mediation/moderation, missing data, LGM, LCA, MLM, and SEM. She teaches courses in causal research design and grant development.
