Research Interests

I am currently conducting comparative studies on the mechanics of sound production in primates. This work is focused on the evolution of speech and on developing better models of voice disorders. I also conduct research on the development of instructional methods for the teaching of psychology. I am currently collaborating with investigators at the University of Iowa, Princeton University, and the University of Utah.
