<p>With a background in education and the humanities, I returned to university as a non-traditional student and, in an effort to deepen my understanding of human nature and its relationship to religion and science, began studying philosophy and psychology. I earned a Master&rsquo;s degree in experimental psychology from WKU in 2011.</p>
    [Section_Field4] => Teaching Interests
    [Section_Value4] => <p>I have a broad range of academic interests and I enjoy the breadth of topics that my classes entail. In addition, I believe that these courses provide students an imperative interface with the world of science. A prevailing objective is to instigate a respect for and understanding of the scientific method, and to inspire intelligent interpretation of the plethora of information available in the twenty-first century. While all of my classes contain a proper dose of behavioral neuroscience, PSYS 480 allows upper-level students the opportunity to study the topic in depth and participate in brain dissection labs. Human development, how we learn, what we remember, and why we believe what we believe are additional teaching interests.</p>

<p>I study the effects of aging and stroke damage on the brain, especially with respect to memory and attention. The large numbers of people who will have dementing disorders, stroke, and traumatic damage to the brain lead to an imperative to understand how to protect the brain from these forms of damage and how to mitigate their effects.</p>
<p>In addition, I am interested in the brain basis of perception, especially the neuroscience of the chemical senses- taste and olfaction. The chemical senses are the oldest in evolutionary terms and are tightly linked to the older, limbic parts of the brain in ways that other senses are not. This means that the chemical senses are closely related to our emotions and our memories.</p>
<p>A new area of interest is how a physical structure of space (a building, park, etc.) influences behavior, cognitions and emotion. This area is referred to as Environmental Psychology.</p>

    [Section_Value1] => <p>My research interests fall under the broad category of adolescent and young adult self-harm and risk-taking behaviors. Specifically, I study risk and protective factors for suicide, as well as non-suicidal self-injury. I am especially interested in the role of the body in self-harm, and how factors such as body image, body protection, and body attitudes are related to an individual&rsquo;s propensity to inflict harm on oneself. Other research has investigated the overlap between self-injury and risk-taking behaviors such as substance use, unhealthy eating and exercise habits, and self-asphyxial behaviors (known commonly among adolescents as &ldquo;the choking game&rdquo;). As a clinical psychologist, I am also interested in the assessment, treatment, and prevention of suicide, non-suicidal self-injury, and eating disorders.</p>

Specifically, my research focuses on the work-life interface, and individual and work influences on safety. Within the work-life interface, I am particularly interested in the idea of transitioning, both psychologically and physically, between the work and non-work domains with a particular emphasis on spillover between domains. I have examined a variety of topics within this area, with my most recent research seeking to understand the influence of workplace attitudes and experiences on employees&rsquo; commuting behaviors. I have also recently become interested in the influence of informal eldercare responsibilities on employees&rsquo; individual and work outcomes. Within individual and work influences on safety, I am particularly interested in the influence of climate factors and psychosocial attitudes on employee safety behaviors.</p>

    [Section_Value1] => <p>I am interested in the semantic relationships underlying word recognition and word usage. I use a very multidisciplinary approach that includes behavioral measures, computational models, and constraints suggested from the neuroscience literature. One goal of my research is to improve our understanding of how word recognition is influenced by the semantic relationships between words. &nbsp;</p>
<p>My long-term objectives include the empirical study and computational modeling of group and individual differences in word recognition. I use computational approaches to characterize typical language use in large natural language datasets. &nbsp;I use behavioral and empircal approaches to characterize individual and group differences in word recognition and usage.&nbsp;</p>
<p>While my primary interest is a computational representation of language usage, I have a general interest in how we derive information from large datasets.</p>

    [Section_Value1] => <p>My research focuses on social and emotional development within the context of the family. My research program is guided by 3 major and interconnected themes: 1) the development of emotion and its regulation (e.g., affect, cardiac physiology, and regulatory strategies), 2) the impact of context (e.g., early parent-child relationships and the marital relationship), and 3) individual differences in child temperament. I am particularly interested in the role of the father in his child&rsquo;s development, such as how father-infant dynamics are similar to or differ from mother-infant dynamics. I use longitudinal designs and multiple methods (e.g., experimenter-report, parent-report, physiological methods, observational coding, etc.) to answer my research questions.</p>

Much of my research is on the development of categorization, an ability that is fundamental to many other behaviors. I have been conducting research in two major areas. First, I have been exploring the development of object categorization, with a focus on developmental changes in the way infants and young children categorize artifacts and natural objects. Second, I have been exploring the early development of social categorization, with a focus on when young children attend to and make use of social categories such as gender and race.</span></p>

<ol>
<li>create an environment in which students feel both challenged and supported</li>
<li>encourage students to recognize the ways that they can make a unique contribution to their field, and</li>
<li>encourage students to view their education as something that happens both within and outside the classroom.</li>

I also teach experimental psychology courses in statistics and cognition that emphasize hands-on learning so that students are learning &ldquo;how-to&rdquo; in psychological science as well as theory. Students who are trained in my research lab are actively involved in research design, including stimulus development and simple programming to create automated tasks and surveys to standardize data collection.</span></p>

    [Section_Value1] => <p>The ability to detect relationships between everyday events is a central aspect of human cognition. Are accidents more likely on this highway? Does this grocery store typically have the best prices? Is this person trustworthy? To answer questions such as these, individuals must acquire, either through direct or indirect experience, knowledge of the contingency and causal relations between two classes of events. For several years now, research in the&nbsp;<a href="https://www.wku.edu/psychological-sciences/labs/cognition/index.php">Cognition Laboratory</a>&nbsp;has focused on how age-related changes in basic learning and memory processes affect the acquisition and retrieval of contingency and causal knowledge. We are especially interested in determining when these changes do and do not impair older adults&rsquo; ability to judge probable cause and make accurate cue &ndash; outcome predictions.Until recently, research in the Cognition Lab has employed behavioral techniques to study age differences in contingency and causal learning; however, we are now beginning to explore how these differences are related to changes in the brain. In addition to increasing our understanding of the neural mechanisms that underlie this important form of human cognition, this new research direction will give students the opportunity to study the neuroscience of aging.</p>

    [Section_Value1] => <p>Working in an applied discipline, I have been fortunate to have had the opportunity to serve on many occasions as both an internal consultant to WKU and as an external consultant to a number of organizations across the country. Whenever feasible, I include&nbsp;<a href="http://www.wku.edu/psychological-sciences/grad/io/index.php">I/O</a>&nbsp;graduate students in these applied research projects. These experiences typically result in written documentation in the form of a technical research report or publication. Applied problems encountered in service experiences frequently provide the impetus for basic research studies, thus contributing to the range of applied topics addressed by my research and providing a sound empirical basis for my applied work. Most recently, my research has focused on:</p>
<ul>
<li>Legal issues including cognitive ability testing court decisions, physical ability testing court decisions, and factors driving perceptions of sexual harassment in jury trials.</li>
<li>Program evaluation for entities such as the Kentucky Family Court System, the Housing Authority After School Program, and the Warren County School Board Alternative to Suspension Program.</li>
<li>The development of a performance appraisal system for the 600+ congregations and pastors of the Kentucky Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church.</li>
</ul>
<p>Other current research efforts focus on:</p>
<ul>
<li>Faculty Pregnancy Leave Practices</li>
<li>Perceptions of fairness and deterrence to future misconduct of intercollegiate sport team disciplinary decisions.</li>

    [Section_Field1] => Research Interests
    [Section_Value1] => <p>My research is in the area of social cognition. I am particularly interested in how people respond to uncertainty, specifically as a psychological threat or as a source of information. This area lies at the intersection of affective and cognitive influences on behavior, and has both basic and applied research importance.</p>
<p>Uncertainty poses both affective and meta-cognitive problems for self-regulation, and I want to understand and solve some of these problems. For instance, a common response to temporary uncertainty is intolerance of others and ideological rigidity. However, both enhanced processing and derogation of others can occur following uncertainty inductions. The determinants of these different responses are an important focus of my current work.</p>

    [Section_Field2] => Research
    [Section_Value2] => <p class="p1">My research interests are in the area of trauma and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Broadly stated, my research examines factors associated with the etiology, maintenance, and treatment of PTSD. I have examined a variety of topics within this area, but I am especially interested in the relationship between interpersonal processes and PTSD, namely the role of social support. My research has examined how lack of support from others exacerbates PTSD symptoms, as well as how relationships may be negatively affected following trauma exposure. I utilize both experimental and non-experimental designs to further this line of research. I have worked with variety of trauma groups, including veterans, survivors of motor vehicle accidents, and survivors of intimate partner violence and other crimes.</p>
