## Research Interests

Professor Brunner's primary research interest is in statistical models incorporating measurement error, with emphasis on parameter identifiability and model mis-specification in structural equation models. More recently he has begun work on estimating the replicability of published research, and the related problem of detecting patterns of bad statistical practice using statistical analysis of the statistics reported in published articles.## Papers available for download

## Biography

Jerry Brunner, sometimes officially known as Lawrence J. Brunner, is an Associate Professor in the Department of Statistical Sciences and the Department of Mathematical and Computational Sciences at the University of Toronto. He has a Ph.D. in Statistics from the State University of New York (1989) and an even earlier one in Social Psychology from the University of Chicago (1978). Professor Brunner came to the University of Toronto in 1989. He lives with his family in an ivory tower at the top of a mountain, pictured below. The mountain is occasionally visible from a distance, but does not appear on any maps.
