I'm a survey methodologist and sociological social psychologist who studies the social and interactional sources of survey errors, the role of identity as a cause or motivation for those errors, and what we can learn about individuals in the social world when we study survey errors as substantive topics in their own right.
I'm particularly interested in the measurement of normative or socially-desirable behaviors, like church attendance, physical activity and exercise, voting and civic behavior, and recycling and "green" behaviors. My research has focused on the reasons survey respondents overreport these behaviors; that is, why they claim that they exercise when they don't or why they report that they attend church or pray more often than they do. A somewhat more complete summary of my research interests can be found here.
