My primary research interest is the application of performance management strategies in businesses and organizations. I also maintain interest in applying behavioral technology to individual performance specifically with regard to sports performance and personal betterment. Two features of the Behaivor Modification course that I reach are the Self-Management Projec t(SMP) and the Application Project. Both of these projects require students to use behavioral strategies to modify behavior--their own in the SMP and another individual--human or animal--in the Application project. Students are taught research methodologies that are used in Applied Behavior Analysis and I work one-on-one with each individual on their projects.
