My primary interests are in the area of disability issues and the role of psychologists in addressing disability at an individual level, community level, national and international levels.  A particular focus involves individuals who have neuropsychological disabilities.  I am a part-time faculty member in the doctoral psychology program and teach courses related to physiological psychology, cognitive behavior therapy, and neuropsychology.

My family and I spend a lot of time appreciating the arts in the Twin Cities, particularly the visual arts at places like the MIA, Walker, and Minnesota Center for Book Arts.
