Research Interests

For many years, my research has been focused on basic human values as they appear across nations. More recently, I got interested in perceptions of older adults and lay theories of wisdom, both in a cross-cultural perspective. Simultaneously, I pursue a track of methodological research. In particular, I investigated a complex role of ipsatization and effects of accounting for measurement error in the values research. I contributed to to the measurement invariance methods, including invariance of the second-order factors and latent classes. Currently I am developing an R package featuring a method for identifying clusters of invariant groups in a network-like representation.
