I am an assistant professor of psychology at a small, teaching-focused 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 engage in the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) research, with specific interests in how to best use technology/media to engage students and writing as learning.
I am an avid long distance runner and have run five marathons and two 50ks. I also enjoy hiking, walking my dogs, canoeing/kayaking, reading & writing, and craft beer.
