Research Interests

structural equation modeling,
longitudinal methodology (e.g. state-trait, growth mixture models)
substance abuse research, especially in young adult populations
adult intellectual development
For those interested in the SAS examples I use in the Kutner's Applied Linear Statistical Models, I'm making them available at: http://sites.google.com/site/generallinearmodeling/
as I have time to make corrections and updates.
Structural Equation Modeling examples that I use in classes I teach and code referenced in articles can be found at: https://sites.google.com/site/semexamples/
