Summary Statement of Research Interests

  • In quantitative psychology, I am interested in modern methods for handling missing data in longitudinal research as well as in smaller experimental designs. I am also interested in applying structural models of growth and change to longitudinal data, with particular interest in growth curve and latent change score models.

    My research interests in social psychology focus on persuasion and social influence, particularly how individuals' ideological beliefs and interpretations of social issues interact to affect their attitudes and behaviors.

Research Specialties

  • Missing data/attrition. Structural analysis of longitudinal and cross-sectional data. Exploratory data mining. Social influence: social norms, message construal.
