Jamali is a Head Expert of scientometrics at Mashhad University of Medical Sciences, Mashhad, Iran, and a Ph.D. degree Student of biostatistics at Shiraz University of Medical Sciences, Shiraz, Iran. Jamali’s research interests fall under the general heading “latent variable models” and “modeling discrete data.” The aim of Jamali’s Ph.D. degree thesis is the introduction of a new technique for detection, differential item functioning (DIF) based on latent variable models (structural equation modeling and latent class modeling). Also, Jamali conducts collaborative research with faculty members in medical, nursing, paramedical, and numerous other departments throughout Iran. Jamali’s contributions consist of helping researchers design experiments, determine sample sizes, decide on appropriate models, select the statistical methodology to analyze their data, and produce insightful graphs. This, hopefully, results in efficient designs, more powerful tests, and improved explanations of the results.
