  ABOUT ALEX YU
I have a Ph.D. in educational psychology (Arizona State University, ASU) with a concentration on measurement, statistics, and methodological studies, as well as a Ph.D. in philosophy (ASU),  specializing in history and philosophy of science. My research interests include, but are not limited to, alternate and emerging research methods (e.g. exploratory data analysis, data visualization, resampling, and data mining),  philosophical aspects of research methodologies (e.g. causal inferences), cross-cultural comparison (e.g. PISA, TIMSS), and the relationships between Christian faith and science. Currently I am an Associate Professor of Psychology at Azusa Pacific University.
