Prior to UNR, I received my Ph.D. in Psychology from the University of Florida under the advisement of Dr. Brian Iwata. I am a Board Certified Behavior Analyst and my main areas of interest are Applied Behavior Analysis, Functional Behaivoral Assessement and Intervention of Behavior Disorders, and Educator/Staff/Parent Training.
