My research and practice span basic, translational, and applied interests. As a clinical consultant, supervisor, and director for eight years, I practiced behavior analysis with developmentally disabled populations in homes, schools, and treatments centers from Florida to California. As a master's degree student at St. Cloud State University, I developed Formative Grapher, an open-source application that aids scientists and clinicians with plotting time-series data. As a doctoral student in the interdisciplinary neuroscience laboratory of Mona Buhusi, I study future-oriented decision making in humans and animal models with behavioral and biological tools. For my research, I won an intramural award and spoke at Annual Convention of the Association for Behavior Analysis International.
I served on the board of the Four Corners Association for Behavior Analysis and reviewed student grant applications for the Association for Psychological Science. For my undergraduate alma matter, Washington University in St. Louis, I interview applicants. This past year, I taught Analysis of Behavior: Basic Principles, a laboratory course at Utah State University, and in the fall, I will be teaching Neuroscience I. Outside of the laboratory, I rock climb and alpine mountaineer.
