Research Interests

My research interests are still the same as they were when I entered the psychology: I would like to know why some people are smarter than others. Though the question has not changed, the way I go about answering it has become increasingly sophisticated (I hope). It is an exciting field that has both theoretical and practical implications. Currently, I am doing research at both ends of the intellectual spectrum with mentally retarded persons and with people with exceptional abilities.


Current Projects

My current major interest is completing a book on human intelligence.
