I am behavior analyst, interested in evaluating and applying the principles of behavior to address a variety of socially significant issues.  My research interests include both translational research aimed at evaluating aspects of behavior-environment relations in controlled settings, and more applied research aimed directly at improving individuals' quality of life.  My current research is in the areas of contingent and noncontingent reinforcement schedules and child fitness.  I have also conducted research on the the assessment and treatment of behavior problems displayed by children and adults with intellectual disabilities, behavioral parent training, and large scale evaluations of behavioral interventions in child welfare and foster care. 

Courses I typically teach include Applied Behavior Analysis (PSY 350 or PSY 317) and graduate Applied Behavior Analysis (PSY 518).  I also teach undergraduate Research Methods (PSY 355).  In the past I have also taught Introductory Psychology.  I anticipate teaching Introduction to Learning and Behavior Analysis (PSY 217) in the future.
