Areas of Interests

As a faculty member with a 100% teaching appointment, my time is primarily devoted to teaching and developing undergraduate courses. I also advise students in career paths in Psychology and occasionally act as an advisor for Honors College undergraduate thesis projects. I am the faculty advisor for the Psychology Club and a mentor for several student athletes.
