Research Interests    

I like to work on applied, real-world problems.  Currently, I am focusing on measures for evaluating physical activity programming.   I have studied turnover among Mexican line workers in American-owned and managed plants in Northern Mexico, and worked on a cross-cultural comparison of cognitive development and elementary educational programming in Taiwan, Japan, and the U.S.
