Instuctor, Visiting    
Biography

As a visiting instructor, my main focus is on teaching. I have spent the last 10+ years of my professional career teaching a variety of undergraduate psychology courses at a number of institutions around the country. Courses I have taught or am currently teaching for Georgia State include Introduction to Psychology, Introduction to Drugs and Behavior, Abnormal Psychology, and Social Psychology. Other courses I have taught in the past include Developmental Psychology, Positive Psychology, Psychology of Human Relations, Social Cognition, Research Methods, and Experimental Social Psychology. I have not conducted formal research in several years, but past projects centered on researching attitudes and attitude change, as well as memory storage and retrieval. I have a bit of an eclectic background, and draw from all areas in my teaching. I believe that being able to integrate what we have learned from different subfields within the discipline of psychology is central to truly beginning to understand human thought and behavior. I am very happy to be part of the faculty here in the Psychology department at GSU!
