I would really like to work towards developing a class of School Neuropsychology 

 Work and Research Interests:

Lately, I have become interested in studying concussion, especially its impact on school performance. I am interested in figuring out ways, other than computer based testing, that can be used to monitor the recovery from concussion. 

Another interest of mine, is to study specific cognitive abilities and their relation to reading and math. Does the ability to plan or process information in a sequential manner matter in when learning basic arithmetic?

I am also interested in the process and implementation of behavioral interventions in classrooms. 

Classes Taught: Educational Disabilities, Psychometric Theory and Applications, Testing Lab

I have a long term goal of developing and teaching a School Neuropsychology course
