My primary research interests concern the structure of self-knowledge and the dynamics of self-regulation. In pursuing these interests, I have published work in three related content areas: (a) cognitive processes associated with self-awareness and self-consciousness, (b) affective processes associated with self-perception and self-regulation — with a special focus on depression, (c) behavioral consequences of self-regulation — with a special focus on alcohol use and abuse. In all of these areas I have followed a general philosophy that endorses the importance of theory building and model testing as a means of advancing knowledge. As a consequence, I have also published work that explores methodological issues with a special interest in the utility of structural equation modeling in solving practical problems associated with theory testing.
