Why I Teach
A small liberal arts college provides students with opportunities to learn and grow in so many ways. In this environment I can engage students on a more personal level and share my passion for psychology. My goal is to encourage students to open their minds, think critically and consider new perspectives. I hope to show students that psychology is relevant to their lives and inspire them to pursue its study.
My current area of research is in the field of Media Psychology. My research examines the relationship between media and technology use and several psychological constructs, including ego-control, ego-resiliency, loneliness and anxiety.
Past research has included impulsivity as a mediating factor in the relationship between empathy and aggression and antisocial behavior among children and adolescents. Additional research interests have been in the field of forensic psychology, including predicting dangerousness and determinants of criminal responsibility.
Other areas of interest are thanatology (the study of death, dying and bereavement), group dynamics and hoarding.
