“Ke-Hai is one of the most brilliant statisticians in a generation, and one of the most productive,” says Dan Lapsley, professor and chair of the Department of Psychology. “What is astonishing is the range of topics where he has made a difference. I can’t think of single topic in quantitative psychology that has not benefitted from Ke-Hai’s scholarship.”

Yuan has published more than 100 papers in the most prestigious journals in the field (including 10 in the esteemed Psychometrika jornal — more than any other scholar), and routinely contributes more than 15 articles a year.
