I was born and raised in Michigan’s Lower Peninsula. I earned a BS and a MA in psychology from Western Michigan University and a PhD in psychology (with a specialization in Behavior Analysis) from West Virginia University before coming to St. Lawrence. My research focuses broadly on the experimental analysis of human and non-human behavior. I use quantitative methods and laboratory models to study the variables that control behavior in our complex world. In the past I have studied rule-governed behavior, choice, punishment, and temporal learning (i.e. how organisms perceive time). I am also interested in using behavior analytic principles to improve the relationships humans have with domesticated animals (applied animal behavior research). I am an avid runner and enjoy spending time outdoors with my wife and our two dogs. I also play bass guitar and am particularly fond of blues music.
