My area of interest is in Health Service Psychology, and, therefore, I support the Department's focus on Health most directly. As a licensed Psychologist, and Director of the PhD program in Clinical Psychology, my teaching and research is dedicated to graduate-level education and clinical application of psychological science. In particular, I consult with, and supervise graduate students training at, the ND Vision Services / School for the Blind, and work to develop neurocognitive tests that are accessible to people with low or no vision. I am also interested in the characteristics of psychological tests that contribute to variations in scores and practice effects, such as the format of a test, or the characteristics of stimuli presented to a test-taker.
