I have lived in Connecticut for most of my life, and started teaching at Quinnipiac University part-time in 2005. Quickly I discovered a joy for the challenging, but rewarding, process of teaching Experimental Methods. I look forward to opportunities to expose psychology students to new areas of the discipline, and hope my enthusiasm for the field and commitment to pedagogy enhances the learning process. Currently, I am teaching full-time as a Visiting Instructor.
Methods I: Experimental Methods, Psychology and the Law, Cognitive Psychology, Child & Adolescent Development, Introduction to Psychology
My research interests mainly focus on juror decision making: factors affecting juror decision-making and the significance of scientific jury selection in the legal system; existence and impact of the CSI Effect; and cognitive models of juror decision-making. As an adoptive parent, I am also interested in the impact of pre- and post-adoption contact on birth and adoptive families.
Interests & Hobbies
I love cooking, hiking, yoga, and when the rare occasion arises, watching sports.
