Research Interests

My research interests are very broad and somewhat eclectic, having done research in aviation psychology, sports psychology, human factors, cognitive psychology, leadership, teams, sexual harassment, character development, positive psychology, and other areas. This variety stems from a statement that B. F. Skinner made concerning serendipity. When something occurs that interests you, follow it; it will be more informative than the original line of thought. Accordingly, I am willing to take on any line of research that may excite the student. Currently, students are conducting lines of research in self-disclosure and personality traits, leadership, character development, sexual harassment, gratitude, and sports psychology.
