Amanda Kay Montoya
I am an Assistant Professor at UCLA in the Department of Psychology - Quantitative Area. I received my PhD in Quantitative Psychology from the Ohio State University in 2018. My primary adviser was Dr. Andrew Hayes. I completed my M.A. in Psychology and my M.S. in Statistics at Ohio State in 2016. I graduated from the University of Washington with a B.S. in Psychology and a minor in Mathematics in 2013. My research interests include mediation, moderation, conditional process models, structural equation modeling, and meta-science.
MY LATEST RESEARCH
Recently, I've been working on generalizing moderation analysis, particularly probing interactions and estimating multiple moderator models, to two-condition repeated measures designs, when the repeated-measures factor is the causal factor of interest.
My dissertation discusses conducting conditional process analysis when data is collected using a two-instance repeated-measures design. I propose a regression based approach for estimating these models, provide worked examples, and discuss alternative analytical approaches.
