Music (especially jazz and progressive rock)
Traveling (especially in Europe)
I have taught courses, given lectures, and conducted research with colleagues in Belgium, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, Poland, Poland, Romania, Spain, Switzerland, and the U.K. Each year I teach an intensive 1-week course on meta-analysis at the University of Luxembourg.
Vegetarian cuisine (eating and cooking)
I have been a vegetarian since age 18.
I love cycling, especially in The Netherlands. (I even have a folding bike or vouwfiets stored at my friend’s house in Amsterdam.) If the weather in Columbus is good, I also like to ride my bike to work at The Ohio State University (about 6 miles or 10 km).
I took a yoga class as an undergraduate student, and have loved it since then. Research shows that yoga is also an effective means of reducing anger and aggression.
