Professor David Andrich of the Australian Institute of Education, Murdoch University, has particular interest and expertise in the area of research methodology. David is the author of Rasch Models for Measurement, other chapters in books and conference proceedings and has published widely in various journals such as Applied Measurement in Education.

Professor Andrich is currently on the editorial boards for the Education Research and Perspectives and Applied Psychological Measurement. He has received several major research grants and is a member of national and international associations relating to measurement, such as the Research Methodology Chapter, International Sociological Association, the American Educational Research Association and the Australian Association for Research in Education.
