Overview

Research interests include (1) The foundations of self-esteem. This includes an interest in the interplay of self-evaluations across different domains (e.g., appearance, social life), processes of self-attention and self-regulation as they are implicated in the maintenance of self-esteem, and the influence of social acceptance and rejection on self-esteem processes. (2 )The role of personality in problem behavior. Particular interest in how prevention interventions can be designed to capitalize on the link between certain personality dimensions (e.g., sensation seeking) and problem behaviors (e.g., use of illicit drugs, sexual risk taking). (3) Strategic applications of structural equation modeling and related techniques for the purpose of modeling complex processes that unfold over time. Particular focus on measurement and design issues relevant for models that include mediated and moderated effects.
