SOS Lab (Science of Subjectivity)

Project | 01

My Research

I am a scientist first, and my area of expertise is human behavior.  I support and strive for open and reproducible science, and pay particular attention to measurement and psychometrics.  Most of my research/teaching resides in a space that intersects psychology, education, language, communications, statistics, measurement, computer science, and technology.  One line of my research/teaching involves the learning, teaching, practicing, and improvement of psychology as science.  Another line involves measuring personality and social dynamics (including language) in real-life (virtual and non-virtual) contexts and person perception in relation to self-presentation, self-concept, and other-perception.  Another line involves the measurement of online human behavior (verbal and nonverbal), as well as using the internet as a learning, teaching, and research tool.  I am also passionate about and study the dynamics of education, teaching, and learning; with various projects focusing on the development, complex dynamics, and improvement of online and non-traditional education.  I love academia where I have fun with research; teaching; mentoring to, learning from, and working with students!
