Hi there, I'm Jeffrey Girard!

I'm an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Kansas. I work in clinical psychology and explore the links between mental health and nonverbal behavior. I collaborate with computer scientists and clinicians to develop technologies that support clinical practice. I use observational methods to quantify facial expressions and other behavioral signals. My main goal is to understand the role that behavioral signals play in emotion and interpersonal communication. I use data science techniques from statistics, machine learning, and software engineering to address research challenges. I love to develop, share, and teach about tools that increase scientific rigor and openness.

🔨 Tools and Frameworks:

💻 Current Software Projects:

  • circumplex - This is a maturing R package for analyzing and visualizing circular data.
  • agreement - This is a developing R package for estimating inter-rater reliability.
  • tidymedia - This is a developing R package for working with audio, video, and image files.

Equivalent to sjPlot::plot_model(type = "pred")

Is there a {see} equivalent to sjPlot::plot_model(fit, type="pred")? Perhaps this is what plot(modelbased::estimate_prediction(fit)) will be (I am …
