Interest Areas:

Dr. Robert Wickham’s research addresses several lines of inquiry, including person perception, close relationships, and psychological well-being. Much of his work is focused on the development, evaluation, and application of quantitative analysis in the social sciences.

IRAM Overview:

IRAM is a collaborative and project-focused lab. Our hope is that students contribute to the field by developing, publishing, and presenting research. Students are encouraged to meaningfully embed novel methodology/advanced statistical approaches into their own work. They are supported by Dr. Wickham and other lab members to develop these skills.
 
The lab maintains many active collaborative relationships with faculty and students from PAU and other institutions, across substantive research areas. Notably, Dr. Wickham has several grants with the LifeMoves Shelter Network, whereby students have the opportunity to apply their knowledge though program evaluation.
