"Psychology is a discipline that is ever evolving, based on how we can examine the human experience. I try to model a curious and critical analysis of the discipline for students. My current interests in Psychology include Neuroplasticity, the biological and evolutionary bases for behavior, creativity and psychology, and sex and gender."
