I am an assistant professor at a small public university in the Midwest. I earned my PhD in neuroscience (cognitive track) at University of Iowa. I currently teach physiological psychology, general psychology, aging, and research methods courses.
My research focuses on judgment and decision-making patterns. I am particularly interested in how we create “value” and contexts that influence decision patterns. I also research the impact of leveraging technology in higher education to improve student learning.
Along with teaching and research, I am an avid long distance runner and have run four marathons and a 50k. I also enjoy hiking, walking my dogs, canoeing/kayaking, reading & writing, and craft beer.
