Below are some of the current research projects I am working on this Summer 2023 :

An Intensive Longitudinal Study of the Theory of Resilience and Relational Load

This 30-day intensive longitudinal study uses dynamic structural equation modeling to determine if relational maintenance builds up emotional reserves that buffer against daily stressors and relationship difficulties.

Students' Psychological Barriers to Rhetorical Dissent: A Random-Intercept Latent Transition Analysis

This study applies person-centered modeling to study why students do not feel comfortable speaking to their professors over the course of a semester.

Using Completed Examples to Manage Students' Cognitive Load while Learning Stitching and Suturing

Through a partnership with WVU Surgical Oncology, this is a medical education simulation designed to help medical students learn how to complete simple interrupted, simple running, horizontal mattress, vertical mattress, deep dermal, and running subcuticular stiches (on pig's feet).

A Person-Centered Approach to Understanding the Health Literacy of Deployed Veterans

This study examines deployed veterans' health literacy and communication with primary care providers.
