Research Interests

My past research focused on two very different areas: a) different aspects of verbal behavior, including client and therapist conversation and verbal sexual harassment, and b) adjustment to brain injury and physical illness. Previously, in conjunction with Dr. C. Wendorf, I involved students in designing and conducting research on attitudes and motivation toward the psychology major. Students have been involved in all phases of research, from designing questionnaires to analyzing data. In addition, I have always been interested in psychology and the arts. I am beginning a new project on applying psychological principles to explain how emotions are conveyed in dance performances and would be interested in working with students with a background in dance. ​​​​
