My program of methodological research is focused on two key issues; these are improving areas where available methods may not be adequate for real psychological data, or where a research question may not be addressed using standard analysis techniques. Specifically, I investigate Bayesian estimation as a tool to help overcome estimation difficulties in structural equation models. I also focus on improving the match between statistical models and psychological theory, because mismatch between model and theory can obscure our understanding of psychological processes and influences.
