Teaching Interests


teach courses in developmental psychology, both child and adolescence, and a laboratory course in methodology. I approach develpment from a lifespan perspective and encourage discussion of issues related to ethnicity and gender. The laboratory course offers students the opportunity to complete an original research project and to develop their writing skills.

Research Interests


y primary research interest is in the psychology of religion. I am presently looking at the ways individuals interpret biblical narratives, specifically as these portray a conflict with God.
