Current Research and Scholarly InterestsI am currently engaged in several projects.
1. I am writing a textbook on Social Network Analysis in R.
2. I am writing up a series of papers on how micro-events in interaction relate to social networks.
3. However, the majority of my current research projects concern the sociology of science and research innovation.

Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMuch of my research examines processes related to identity maintenance and their implications for social problems. One primary aim of my research is the development of theory-driven, rigorously tested intervention strategies that further our understanding of the processes underpinning social problems and that offer solutions to alleviate them. Two key questions lie at the core of my research: “Given that a problem exists, what are its underlying processes?” And, “Once identified, how can these processes be overcome?” One reason for this interest in intervention is my belief that a useful way to understand psychological processes and social systems is to try to change them. We also are interested in how and when seemingly brief interventions, attuned to underlying psychological processes, produce large and long-lasting psychological and behavioral change.
The methods that my lab uses include laboratory experiments, longitudinal studies, content analyses, and randomized field experiments. One specific area of research addresses the effects of group identity on achievement, with a focus on under-performance and racial and gender achievement gaps. Additional research programs address hiring discrimination, the psychology of closed-mindedness and inter-group conflict, and psychological processes underlying anti-social and health-risk behavior.
Bowen H. and Janice Arthur McCoy Professor in Leadership Values and Professor of Psychology
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy research deals with how people address threats to the self in interpersonal situations: How they avoid feeling prejudiced, how they construe other people's behavior to make to their own look good, how they deal with dissonance, how they affirm a threatened identity, how they resent the goodness of others when it makes them look bad, etc. I study these issues in the context of social norms, the self, and morality, broadly defined.

I manage a team of UX Strategists, UX/UI Visual Designers, and Enterprise Content Analysts who focus on user experience and enterprise content strategy. We seek to create effective user-centered solutions for our client-partners at the Graduate School of Business.
Trained as a Catalyst as part of the Stanford Design School's "Design Thinking Basic Training" program, I offer custom, consultative Design Thinking workshops & facilitation skills to the Staff and Alumni of the Graduate School of Business (GSB) as an extension of my role as a Business Analyst for the GSB. (They are concurrent positions)
"Design Thinking Basic Training" ~3-4 hour program is a hands-on session practicing tools for bringing ideas to life. The content is designed and delivered by d.school faculty and the classroom experience is facilitated by rising-star d.school catalysts. The purpose is to give people a view into the Design Thinking approach and teach them how to begin to apply it to their everyday work (or personal) life.

BioEverything should be as simple as it can be, but not simpler.

It can scarcely be denied that the supreme goal of all theory is to make the irreducible basic elements as simple and as few as possible without having to surrender the adequate representation of a single datum of experience.
