Research Interests:

I am the director of the graduate program in behavior analysis and the chair of the Institutional Review Board at Salve Regina. The overarching goal of my research and clinical focus is improving the practice of behavior analysis. To this end, my research has two major concentrations. The first and primary concentration is improving assessment and treatment methodologies for severely challenging behavior in clinical settings. The second concentration is addressing organizational issues related to the delivery of behavior analysis.

I have published works in prominent behavior analytic journals, including the Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, Behavior Analysis in Practice and the Journal of Organizational Behavior Management. I have served as a reviewer for multiple behavior analytic journals and a guest associate editor for Perspectives on Behavior Science and Behavior Analysis in Practice. Currently, I am the director of the executive board for the Rhode Island Association for Behavior Analysis and the executive producer and host of "Behavior Analysis in Practice: The Podcast."
