My name is Mason Garrison. I am an assistant professor of quantitative psychology at Wake Forest University. Formerly, I was National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow and Quantitative Methods graduate fellow at Vanderbilt University, Peabody College in Nashville, Tennessee, where I worked with Profs. Joe Rodgers and Kris Preacher. Previously, I was a visiting international researcher at the University of British Columbia, where I worked with Profs. Jeremy Biesanz and Anita DeLongis. My research uses kinship structure (i.e., family data), such as married partners or siblings to infer causation about individual differences. I am particularly interested in developing kinship models to explore the relationship among personality, intelligence, and health.
