I am an assistant professor at a small public university in the Midwest. I earned my PhD in neuroscience at University of Iowa. I currently teach aging/developmental psych, physiological psychology, and research methods courses.
My research focuses on decision-making patterns across the lifespan and in collision athletes. I am particularly interested in how we create “value” and heuristics/biases that impact decision patterns. I also research the impact of leveraging digital and social media use in higher education.
Along with teaching and research, I am an avid long distance runner with four marathons and a 50k under my belt. I also enjoy cycling, hiking, walking my dogs, canoeing/kayaking, reading & writing, and craft beer.
