Within the first area he focuses on identifying classroom instructional techniques through direct classroom observation that predict higher student achievement. Within the second area he focuses on understanding how depictions of risk glorifying behavior in entertainment media such as movies and TV shows influences young teens to engage in health risking behavior. His final area of expertise is in advanced statistical methods and latent variable models for the analysis of longitudinal data.
