My research and teaching focus on quantitative methods for analyzing psychological data. In particular, my research centers around methods for determining when a 'lack of relationship' occurs. This could involve mean equivalence, lack of correlation, negligible interaction, etc. I am also interested in robust statistical tests for mean difference, the analysis of change, multiple comparison procedures, and related topics.
