About Me

I am the coordinator of the forensic psychology concentration within the psychology major. I also teach most of the related courses, as well as some core courses in psychology. My research focuses primarily on clinical issues within corrections, such as mental health within prisons, correctional staff's perceptions of their duties, mental health of juvenile probationers, and so on. As of May 15, 2022, I am also the interim director of the master's program in industrial/organizational psychology.
