The areas of longitudinal data analysis, multilevel modeling, and structural equation modeling.
Lijuan Wang's research interests are in the areas of longitudinal data analysis (e.g., methods and models for studying intra-individual change, variability, and relations, and inter-individual differences in them), multilevel modeling (e.g., dyadic data analysis), structural equation modeling (e.g., mediation analysis), and study design issues (e.g., sample size determination). She is also interested in measurement issues related to longitudinal research. Substantively, she is interested in applying quantitative methods in developmental, family, health, and educational research.
