Identity for members of negatively stereotyped groups such as Latino or African Americans is linked to a variety of detrimental life outcomes. Accordingly, robust findings across social science literatures document that making identity salient in ways that connect the self to negative stereotypes undermines academic achievement and adversely affects mental and physical health. Consistent with such findings, interventions that target social disparities experienced by members of negatively stereotyped groups often focus on the ways in which identity is associated with risk and negative consequences.

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and related conduct problems (e.g., aggression) are highly prevalent, treatment resistant, and they uniquely predict poor adolescent and adult outcomes. My research focuses on identifying factors that predict the onset, maintenance, and long-term prognosis of children with these challenges.

Missing data are a pervasive research problem that cuts across a variety of substantive disciplines. For example, participants in a psychology study may refuse to answer specific questionnaire items, or patients in a longitudinal clinical trial may drop out prematurely. Applying unsophisticated analysis approaches (e.g., excluding cases with missing data) can bias estimates of associations among variables and reduce the sensitivity to detect treatment effects.

Dealing with spam for Enterprise Messaging (EM) users

Date published: 9/3/2015

We recently discovered that many messages intended for our Psychology Enterprise Messaging (EM) email users were mistakenly tagged as spam.  In working with the EM team we learned that EM has been processing an extremely high number of advertisement/marketing emails.  They explained that the EM servers start deferring legitimate messages when their system load is too high, and the loads have been higher than 80% recently.  To combat this problem EM’s spam settings were changed but in doing so, much of our legitimate mail (especially messages sent through mailing lists like Mailman), was qua
