About Me:

When I am not in the lab I enjoy hiking, biking, cooking, and playing an abundance of games (board games, video games, and especially D&D). Catch me around town and let's go for a pint!

Education & Training

  • B.A., St. Bonaventure University

Research Interests

Generally, I am interested in learning and novel problem-solving. More specifically, I am interested in decision making during a cognitively demanding task while in a high risk-situation, prior misconceptions causing misperceptions in learning, and meta-cognitive learning in a classroom environment. The most current research project I have been a part of examines the effects of a physics misconception on the perception of physical motion.
