I am a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst-Doctoral (BCBA-D) and lecturer in applied behaviour analysis. I have been working in the field of applied behaviour analysis as a behaviour specialist, school psychologist, researcher, and assistant professor for over 10 years throughout the United States. Before joining Monash University, I was an assistant professor of school psychology at the University of Alabama, USA. I completed my PhD in School Psychology at the University of Utah specialising in teleconsultation and disruptive behaviour. During my training, I completed my predoctoral psychology internship at the Marcus Autism Center where I obtained training in the assessment and treatment of paediatric feeding disorders and severe problem behaviour. Prior to this, I completed my master’s in school psychology at the University of Utah. Through this time, I also earned my BCBA while gaining clinical skills in the assessment and treatment of problem behaviour. I have interest and experience providing training and consultation using technology in schools and clinical settings. Additional interests stem from my work at a residential summer program for young people with social, emotional, and behavioural challenges located in New York, where I provided direct behavioural intervention, coaching, and training services for both the youth and staff. As such, my clinical and research interests fall under training and skill development for parents, teachers, and caretakers in the treatment of problem behaviour.
Broadly, my research interests relate to:
- Indirect service delivery in supporting parents and teachers
- Evidence-based behaviour interventions
- The use of technology within consultation and intervention
My work has been conducted across a variety of settings including schools, homes, and recreational settings. Of particular interest would be topics related to applied behaviour analysis, Problem-solving consultation, and technological innovations within intervention and consultation. Predominately, My research has utilized single-case research methodology; however, I have experience with group design and meta-analytic methodologies.
