John Sideris is a professor of research and USC Chan’s Director of Instrument Development and Psychometric/Statistical Analysis. Dr. Sideris earned his master’s and PhD degrees in Quantitative Psychology from the L. L. Thurstone Psychometric Laboratory at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He has wide experience in the application of linear models (e.g., general linear models, mixed models) to observational and experimental data, with particular expertise in psychometric analysis, including factor analysis and item response theory.

Dr. Sideris collaborates on several projects inside and outside USC Chan, but most of his work occurs in his role as a member of the Innovations in Neurodevelopmental Sensory Processing Research (insp!re) Laboratory directed by Dr. Grace Baranek. The majority of Dr. Sideris’ more than 70 published papers and presentations involve the study of children with neurodevelopmental differences. Currently, much of this work is focused on the early detection of autism and related disorders, the measurement of these disorders and the development of effective interventions.
