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.
