As human beings, we spend an incredible amount of time engaged with things that aren’t real: daydreams, novels, and fictional movies and television, just to name a few. My research interests focus on the cognitive science of fiction and storytelling, investigating a variety of questions such as: Why do people like fictional books, movies, and television shows, even though they know they aren’t real? How is our sense of “fictional morality” different than real-world morality, and why do we sometimes like fictional characters who are not moral, when we probably would not care for them if they were real people? How do adults and children who frequently engage in imaginary worlds differ from those who do not? Do children with imaginary friends grow up to read more fiction? Do they grow up to write more fiction? What is the psychological and cognitive profile of professional fiction writers? What can the children’s book market tell us about cognitive development? I explore these questions by investigating how our relationship with the un-real changes across the course of development, and at this point, my work focuses primarily on neurotypical preschoolers, elementary school students, and adults. Additional interests include children’s understanding of intellectual property and “ideas” more broadly, including how understanding of “ideas” is distinguished from other domains of theory of mind, such as understanding of knowledge and beliefs, and work focused on moral development.

My research interests focus on leadership, emotions in the workplace, and ethical decision-making. With respect to leadership, my research has addressed issues such as how emotions and emotion processes influence the attitudes and performance of leaders and their followers, what skills contribute to leader performance over time, and how can case-based training be structured to effectively develop leaders. I have also been interested in ethical decision-making in organizations, particularly how to assess and train research ethics in various scientific domains. Some of my recent research has also examined the relationship of emotion and communication strategies to attitudes within ideologically-driven discussions on the internet. Most of my research integrates both novel and tried-and-true approaches to assessing individual differences. I am a founding faculty member of the Center for Applied Social Research (CASR) and I currently serve on CASR’s governing board and executive committee.

My research is interdisciplinary as it combines the study of both personality and human factors. I primarily study traits with biological and perceptual bases (e.g. extraversion, anxiety, and neuroticism) and am particularly interested in research employing human performance and psycho-physiological measures. My current research focuses on behavioral aspects of individual differences, examining specifically mediating effects on performance in response to workload variation. Other research projects involve the study of self-esteem and social support.

My research interests span personnel psychology, human resource management, and organizational behavior, including topics in personnel assessment, selection, training and development, leadership and group dynamics. Much of my research involves the study of human performance and complex skill acquisition with emphases on individual differences in ability and motivation, cognitive and social processes, expert-novice differences, skill decay and adaptability, and team-based training. My research on training and complex skill acquisition reflects both experimental and differential perspectives. I frequently examine attribute-treatment interactions involving both ability and non-ability individual differences. My research on group dynamics focuses on the interplay between teamwork behaviors, team emergent states (e.g., team efficacy, cohesion, and mental models), team performance, and adaptability. With respect to leadership, I am interested in the development and use of low-fidelity (e.g., situational judgment tests) and high-fidelity techniques (e.g., assessment centers) for assessing and developing leadership skills, especially in terms of specific cognitive processes associated with sensemaking.

My students and I conduct field and laboratory experiments in animal cognition, focusing on how animals use information to solve environmental problems, especially problems related to foraging. Our main study sites are in alpine and subalpine meadows in the central Colorado Rockies where we study behavioral adaptations of golden-mantled ground squirrels and least chipmunks. We also model cognitive solutions to resource uncertainty in a state of the art behavioral laboratory using a breeding population of wild-caught chipmunks that are house uncaged, and tested in open naturalistic environments. The current emphasis is on adaptations to variable environments, such as how animals estimate the value of unknown patches, the value of known patches that vary over time, and how they place and recover caches. Spatial mapping, timing, averaging, categorization and equivalence and some of the cognitive processes under study.

My research in social cognition targets the following question: What factors influence how people gather and process social information? In previous research, I have approached this question within the context of the self-fulfilling prophecy–the process whereby we cause others to behave in ways that are objectively consistent with our expectations. In a related line of research, I investigate individual differences in cognitive style, approaching the question of social cognition from the perspective of chronic motivations and characteristic ways of thinking. More recently, I have begun researching factors affecting student retention and success, including individual differences in students’ attitudes toward their education.

I study aspects of human memory, including false memories (remembering events that did not actually happen), forgetting, memory enhancement, and metamemory (knowledge about our own memory). In addition to studying these aspects separately, I am particularly interested in studying the ways in which they interact, such as how forgetting affects both accurate and false memories. My research also extends to several real-world situations, such as education and eyewitness memory. I use a combination of techniques to study these aspects of memory: In addition to conducting experiments with human participants, I also build and test computer models of memory.

My research interests concern methodological/statistical issues surrounding uncertainties in parameter estimates and model fit as well as uncertainty associated with missing data. I am currently investigating parameter influence (the relation of changes in parameter values to the changes in model fit), fungible parameter values (sub-optimal parameter values having quite different coefficient magnitudes from optimal solutions while producing only negligibly small deterioration in model fit), posterior predictive model checking (PPMC) method (a Bayesian method of data-model fit assessment by comparing the observed data to plausible/future observations simulated from the posterior predictive distribution), and multiple imputation (MI) inference for the analysis of incomplete data. I am also interested in working with researchers in applied settings to make methodological contributions to substantive research and to identify and investigate methodological challenges.

My overall research focus is on behaviors and characteristics that can be construed as socially dominant. Specifically, I am interested in physical aggression (intimidation, bullying), relational aggression (manipulation, gossip, exclusion), and perceived popularity. Youth who are perceived-popular are socially well-connected, highly visible and influential, and make up the "popular" or "cool" crowd in a given school. I am interested in how these youth achieve such high status, as well as how they use their status to further their own social goals. We know that perceived popularity is highly stable across adolescence, but little is known about how much continuity there is from adolescence into early adulthood or about what form popularity or dominance might take once adolescents leave the high school context. I also study the link between popularity and antisocial or risk-taking behaviors such as delinquency, aggression, and substance use, and the role of peer influence in adolescent risk-taking behaviors.

My research deals with statistics as they apply to psychological issues including data analysis. My present work focuses on the statistical and measurement issues found in selection, validation, and validity generalization. Psychological research often produces conditions in nonrandom samples, with errors of measurement, or situations where the independence assumption is not tenable. The aim of my work is to find distributions and procedures that can be used in these conditions.

My interests lie in the assessment and development of high level talent. Currently, the research focuses on four specific areas. The first area is concerned with the identification and measurement of creative thinking skills. The second area focuses on those skills that leaders must possess to perform well in dynamic organizational settings. The third area examines work place structure as it relates to skill growth and development. Finally, I continue to conduct work on the potential applications of life history path as a tool for understanding career development.

My primary research interests include performance feedback, Occupational Health Psychology (OHP), and discrimination. My interests related to reception of feedback include multisource performance appraisal, developmental assessment centers, and the experience of errors in performance. Within the realm of OHP my research has examined factors affecting the occurrence of workplace aggression, counterproductive work behavior, and safety-related outcomes, such as accidents and injuries. I also have conducted research on the topics of workplace diversity and discrimination, primarily focusing on organizational diversity climates, attitudes toward affirmative action, and the experience of subtle discrimination.

I am interested in developing and applying statistical methods to analyze intra-individual variability and long-term change. Specifically, my research interests include (1) dynamic factor models and time series models from both Frequentist and Bayesian perspectives and (2) models for longitudinal data. My areas of substantive research concern various aspects of social-emotional development and academic achievement. I am also interested in the application of quantitative methods in education, health, and I/O related research.

I have two primary research interests. My first interest lies in the development, understanding, and application of psychometric theory useful in test construction and evaluation. I investigate the full ramifications of measurement error on both psychological assessment and psychological theory, with particular interest in the effects of measurement error on the assessment of change. My second interest involves understanding the processes underlying interpersonal perception and the making of social judgments. Using a technique called sociometry, I have developed mathematical models which attempt to illuminate the processes humans use in understanding their social world and in relating to their peers.

My primary research focus involves the application of mathematical memory models to study the role of memory processes in judgment and decision-making phenomena. In the laboratory, I employ experimental methods and procedures from memory paradigms to help understand judgment processes. My current research investigates how a modified version of MINERVA-DM, HyGene, accounts for the effects of hypothesis generation on probability judgments, confidence judgments and hypothesis testing. I also do work concerning the study of expertise, primarily in the areas of performance evaluation and the development of decision support tools. I am particularly interested in applications of the CWS index to evaluate expertise. CWS employs the ratio of discrimination to inconsistency within a set of judgments to assess the performance of experts. My colleagues and I have successfully applied CWS in auditing, livestock judging, medicine, personnel selection, and air traffic control (ATC).

Research in the Cognitive Development Lab investigates the ways children learn, develop strategies to solve problems, generalize knowledge to novel contexts, and remember information. Children’s learning is tracked on a trial-by-trial basis using the microgenetic method. The microgenetic method highlights how learning occurs in preschoolers, elementary through high school students, and college-aged adults. Current projects in the Cognitive Development Lab focus on shifts in children’s numerical representations with increasing age and experience, circumstances under which transfer of numerical knowledge is facilitated or inhibited, children’s use of “buggy” estimation strategies, how children draw analogies between numerical contexts to help them solve problems, the costs and benefits of representational change, and the impact that numerical representations have on the types of numbers children are able to remember. Research in the Cognitive Development Lab can inform classroom interventions and best practices in teaching children about numbers.

I am an adjunct instructor in the Psychology department, and have been since Fall, 2006. I am a clinical psychologist by profession, and a teacher by avocation. My focus is providing students with a real life look at the profession of clinical psychology. Thus when I have students do research I want them to connect theory with practice.
