Diemer harnesses advanced quantitative methods to examine how young people develop critical consciousness – the capacity to reflect on, negotiate, and challenge racial, ethnic, socioeconomic, and other constraints in school, college, work, and civic/political institutions. His research is currently funded by the Institute for Education Sciences, Mental Research Institute, National Institute of Health, National Science Foundation, Spencer Foundation, and the William T Grant Foundation.
Diemer teaches courses on psychometrics and structural equation modeling and provides statistical consultation to the campus community at the University of Michigan. He has delivered invited lectures and workshops on these and other quantitative topics domestically and internationally. He also served as the Statistical Consultant for the Psychology of Women Quarterly.
In 2019, Diemer received the Provost’s Teaching Innovation Prize for Advancing Diversity, Equity & Inclusion via Advanced Quantitative Methods at the University of Michigan.
