Current Research

 I am currently employing digital statistical methods to explore the history of American psychology around the turn of the 20th century. These include cluster analysis and social network analysis of journal aritcles and other electronic databases to discover relationships among research topics, authors, instututions, laboratory equipement, species used as research subjects, and other aspects of early psychological research. I head a lab of similarly-inclined researchers -- faculty, grad students, undergrads -- called the PsyBorgs.
