Current Projects

  • Career Development Award: Ecological Momentary Assessment of High-Risk Sexual Behavior in OEF/OIF/OND Veterans (PI): A study of male Veterans using EMA to measure daily fluctuation in PTSD symptoms, perceptions of invincibility, impulsivity, and high-risk behavior.
  • Improving Clinician's Ratings of Financial Incapability (Rosen, PI): A multi-site validation study of a new instrument designed to measure patients' money management ability.

Research Summary

My recent work has focused on risk taking and impulsivity, and on methods for modeling incomplete data. Other areas of research interest include methodological issues related to the analysis of longitudinal and hierarchically-structured data, and the use of these methods to answer substantive questions in education and psychology.
