Currently, I am interested in the statistical issues related to the replication crisis in psychology. I believe that R is the future of data analysis in psychology and I am also a strong advocate of reproducible research (i.e., creating a reproducible process for generating the numbers in your paper). More genearally, my research interests include teamwork, organizational commitment, and the role of emotions in the workplace.

Research

Currently, I am interested in the statistical issues surrouding the replication crisis in psychology. I believe that R is the future of data analysis in psychology and I am also a strong advocate of reproducble research (i.e., creating a reproducible process for generating the numbers in your paper). More genearally, my research interests include teamwork, organizational commitment, and the role of emotions in the workplace. 

Replicability of Studies. Psychology is currently experiencing what some have called a 'crisis of confidence' due to the problems associated with replicating findings. I am interested in exploring the methodological factors that influence this issue. 

Teamwork. Teams are being used extenstively within organizations, consequently they are the topic of a considerable amount of research. I am interested in the numerous methodological and statistical issues involved in team research.

Organizational Commitment. Individuals choose to remain at organizations for a variety of reasons. Those reasons include identification and emotional attachment (affective commitment), perceived obligation (normative commitment), and perceived costs of leaving (continuance commitment) (Meyer & Allen, 1990). Currently, I am collaborating with others to investigate how commitment levels and relations vary cross-culturally.

Emotions in the Workplace. Emotions are a key factor governing how individuals behave at both work and home. I am particularly interested in how various models of affect create different predictions for workplace behaviours.
