My research involves personality and forensic assessment using the MMPI-2 and MMPI-A. Specific interests include (1) identification of invalid responding; (2) validity with ethnic minority groups; (3) Restructured Clinical (RC) Scales; (4) Personality Psychopathology-Five (PSY-5) Scales; (5) correlates of scales and code types in a variety of settings; and (6) predicting institutional and post-institutional adjustment of prisoners.
