Social Psychology
Research Interests:

The primary focus of my research program is the cognitive, affective, and social processes relevant to self-regulation. This research program comprises two streams. One primarily involves controlled laboratory experiments and focuses on the psychological resources that allow for successful self-control. The other primarily involves correlational and field research and focuses on personality and social variables associated with failures of self-regulation as they manifest in problem behavior. A secondary focus of my research program is applied quantitative methods. A particular focus is measurement and design issues relevant for models that include mediated and moderated effects.
