Mostly, I teach courses related to cognitive psychology, including research methods, statistics, and physiological psychology. I also enjoy teaching courses on health and aging, sleep and dreaming, and memory. Following my research interests, I teach an advanced seminar that focuses on the cognitive and cultural impacts of the phenomenon of "multitasking."
Born and raised near Baltimore, Maryland, I earned my B.S. in psychology from Towson University in 2003. After a curious summer working in a rat lab at the National Institute on Aging, I followed my interest in the field of cognitive aging to Syracuse University, where I earned both my M.S. (2005) and Ph.D. (2009) in Experimental Psychology.
Currently, I reside in the nearby town of Corning, and I enjoy spending my free time exploring the Finger Lakes and the Adirondacks.
