We are proud to announce that our longtime colleague, Dr. John Prindle, has been promoted to the rank of Research Associate Professor at the USC Suzanne Dworak-Peck School of Social Work. His research focuses on longitudinal and predictive modeling of the impacts of maltreatment on child and family services, and on child development. Prior to working with the CDN, John developed theory guided exploration methods to combine structural modeling and data-mining techniques to examine covariance structure heterogeneity. He is also interested in models of growth and change, measurement models, and studying the impact of incomplete data in biasing statistical tests. John graduated from the University of California, San Diego with BS/BA degrees in Psychology and Economics, and from the University of Southern California with a PhD in Psychology. Congratulations on this well-deserved recognition, John! We look forward to many more years of collaboration.
