After coming to Carroll University, I completed my doctoral dissertation work and continued collaborative research related to my dissertation with Dr. Thomas M. Ostrom (Ohio State University) and Dr. John Pryor (University of Notre Dame). I also spent several years developing data analysis and computer resources for the Psychology Department and serving as an informal consultant to students, faculty, staff, and administrators in the design, administering, and analysis of experiments and surveys.

In more recent years, my research interests have focused on the "Mozart effect," computer-mediated communication on the Internet and web-based survey methodology. I am especially interested in investigating the usefulness of web 2.0 learning tools such as blogs, podcasts, wikis, and other social media applications. Most recently, as I approach retirement, I have refocused my research interests on global/international communication and applications of social psychology for making the world a better place.
