Simon Moon, Ph.D.

Associate Professor


Dr. Moon is interested in measurement issues in various psychological studies and applied settings. His primary interest lies on the measures of emotional regulation (including measurement issues such as emotional intelligence). Currently, he is working on a manuscript investigating psychometric issues in EQ measures. Also, he is working on measurement equivalency issues (structural equation modeling approach to reliability issues) in organizational settings. This study is based on probably the largest data in the history of psychology (over 650K samples). Because Dr. Moon is interested in basic measurement, statistical, and methodological issues, he has worked on many diverse projects as a methodology/statistics expert.
