I am a cognitive/experimental psychologist (interests below). At Marist, I teach biopsychology and research methods courses, and I am the advisor to the Psychology Club. I'm passionate about teaching and I'm happy to involve dedicated students in my own research (and support student projects). I'm also happy to talk to students about graduate school.
