I am Professor and Coordinator of the Psychology Honors Program, University of Louisville. My A.B. in psychology is from Harvard and Ph.D. in psychology from the University of Pennsylvania. My earlier career was focused on the study and treatment of schizophrenia, leading to an NIMH MERIT Award and Mental Health Professional of the Year (NAMI-Georgia). My current interests also include the interface of clinical and pedagogical issues in undergraduate education. My students and I are exploring the relationship between affect and cognition ranging from critical thinking in the classroom to thought disorder in the clinic. My undergraduate teaching includes introductory psychology and personality; I also teach a graduate seminar in psychopathology. I am a licensed clinical psychologist in Kentucky.
