“I believe... that theories of the middle range hold the largest promise, provided that the search for them is coupled with a pervasive concern with consolidating special theories into more general sets of concepts and mutually consistent propositions.”

What I Do

My research is animated by two complementary aims. First, I examine how work in cultural sociology, social psychology, and cognitive psychology can be synthesized to develop better models of human action, focusing particularly on values, identities, and dual-process cognition. Second, I explore the sources and behavioral consequences of different moral cultures.  

I also am interested in quantitative methods. In the past I have published on rural churches and clergy health.
