PSYC 204: Research Methods
My current research is broadly in the areas of (1) personnel psychology with an emphasis on testing, assessment, selection, validation, and associated methodological issues including but not limited to meta-analysis; (2) individual and team training with a focus on complex skill acquisition and factors related to minimizing skill decay and enhancing retention. This line of research also focuses on training design features and their relationship to the effectiveness of organizational training; and (3) the identification and examination of individual difference variables related to complex information processing tasks such as driving behaviors and vehicle crash involvement.
