Personal profile

Biography

My research interests are primarily drawn from the study of individual differences (personality and cognitive abilities). This area of research seeks to further our understanding about people, who they are, how they differ from each other, and why they do what they do. In addition, I am particularly interested in the study of psychometrics, or measurement science, which relates to the design, construction, validation, and evaluation of psychological instruments. Finally, I also maintain some interests in trauma for emergency services workers, and aviation human factors.
