I received my undergraduate degree from SUNY Plattsburgh, a small liberal arts college in upstate New York. At that institution, classes were small and faculty/student interaction beyond the classroom was commonplace. Partly because of this warm and engaging experience, I have a strong commitment to my students both in and out of the classroom; I believe that best practices for a successful educator include knowing students personally, and utilizing a variety of pedagogical methods to insure I reach all students.
I enjoy teaching forensic psychology, the psychology of eating and drinking, and courses in the department’s research sequence. My research focuses on applying psychology to issues in the criminal justice system, for example jury decision making, and I have made it a goal to involve undergraduate students in my research program.
