Michael Frisby is an assistant professor in the Department of Educational Policy Studies affiliated with Research, Measurement and Statistics.
Frisby earned his Ph.D. from the University of Michigan. His research features applied psychometrics as a tool for exploring youths’ development of critical consciousness. Most recently, his work uses latent profile analysis, item response theory, and structural equation modeling to explore how young people with more privileged identities develop critical consciousness and challenge systemic inequality. Frisby is also interested in the theoretical and methodological expansion of quantitative critical race theory (QuantCRiT) and critical quantitative studies (CritQuant).
