My primary search interests concern the following: vegetarianism as social identity, day-to-day variability in psychological states, state versus trait measurement of psychological constructs, naturally occurring social interaction, and multilevel modeling.
Recently, I have started to study relationships between vegetarianism considered as a social identity and psychological well-being (broadly defined) and socio-political attitudes. I have added this perspective to my traditional research interests that include naturally occurring social interaction and naturally occurring variability in psychological states. I remain interested in applications of multilevel modeling in personality and social psychology.
