I conduct basic and translational research in the neuroscience laboratory of Mona Buhusi at Utah State University. With humans and animal models, I study memory, time, and data visualization. My current research concerns optogenetics, temporal discounting, and performance management.

As a clinical consultant, supervisor, and director for eight years, I practiced behavior analysis with developmentally disabled populations—my practice took me into homes, schools, and treatments centers from California to Florida. I also served on the board of the Four Corners Association for Behavior Analysis. I obtained my bachelor's degree from Washington University in St. Louis and my master's degree from St. Cloud State University.

I currently teach Analysis of Behavior: Basic Principles at Utah State University and will be speaking at the Annual Convention of the Association for Behavior Analysis International in May.

Outside of the laboratory, I rock climb, alpine mountaineer, and backcountry ski.
