My dissertation involved the development of a scale examining achievement goal orientation but my current research interests are broad. I recently published an article co-authored with an Adams State graduate examining first impressions across introduction media. A strong supporter of undergraduate research, I have sponsored numerous student projects at the annual Rocky Mountain Psychological Association conference and recently co-lead a replication experiment in conjunction with The Open Science Framework’s Reproducibility Project.
