*	Computer adaptive testing 
*	Marketing (e.g pairwise designs for preference and choice studies) 
*	Health care outcomes (e.g linking performance scales) 
*	Using simulation studies for clarifying methodological issues e.g tests of fit, measurement precision, effects of multidimensionality and response dependence 
*	Developments in Rasch modelling (e.g. differential item functioning) 
*	Understanding response processes compatible with the Rasch models  
*	Epistemology, fundamental measurement and Rasch models
