Linying Ji

Graduate Student Researcher

I am a PhD student working under the mentorship of Dr. Sy-Miin Chow.  I am also pursuing a concurrent graduate degree in applied statistics.  My research interest lies broadly in applying statistical methods to the study of child development processes in the context of family systems.  In particular, I am interested in developing and applying dynamic systems modeling techniques to study intra-individual change as well as inter-individual differences in the emergence and development of child regulatory and mother-child co-regulatory processes, and how contextual factors, such as parenting and household environment, would influence the development of these processes.  I received a Master of Education degree at Harvard Graduate School of Education, where I mainly worked on child-parent interaction, child language and cognition development, and technology-facilitated learning.
