Brief Biography

I received my PhD in Behavioral Psychology from the University of Kansas in 2010. Prior to that I received my MS in Special Education and BA in History from the University of Utah.

Research Interests

My research and teaching interests focus on assessment and intervention for problem behaviors exhibited by children with autism, emotional/behavioral disorders, and other neurodevelopmental disabilities. I am especially interested in translating basic research in behavioral psychology to inform practice in clinical and school settings. In addition, I am interested in motivation for tasks involving language and literacy in children with disabilities. Finally, I do research on the development and phenomenology of repetitive behaviors and selective mutism in children with neurodevelopmental disabilities.
