Kenny’s work on methods and models for analyzing dyadic and group data have revolutionized how researchers collect, analyze, and interpret data from dyads and groups. He has written extensively about how traditional data analytic approaches can be adapted to these contexts, as well as the extent to which these traditional methods are biased by ignoring interdependence. More critically, the models that Kenny has developed (e.g., the Social Relations Model and the Actor-Partner Interdependence Model) have motivated researchers to examine interdependence as a phenomenon that is interesting in its own right.
