Michael Lovaglia's interests include social psychology, especially power and status processes, the reciprocal effects of evolution and physiology on social behavior, social factors that affect academic performance, theory construction, and the sociology of science. Current research projects involve power in exchange networks, group process effects on IQ scores, the effects of emotions on status processes, and explaining why more women than men now attend colleges and universities. A new project, Best Schools for Athletes, investigates how schools can promote athletic and academic excellence without compromising either goal.
