Biography

Greetings! I have been with Psychology at Athabasca University since 2002. It is certainly an exciting time to be part of such a dynamic group, and to be actively involved with the growing popularity of distance and online education. My area of specialization is in behavioural neuroscience, commonly referred to as physiological psychology, or biological psychology. The task of behavioural neuroscience is to explain behaviour in terms of brain functioning - that is, it denotes a biological approach to the study of psychology. Since joining AU, I have been able to combine my interests in technology with teaching psychology and neuroscience.

Interests

  • Neural Plasticity; Epilepsy; Anticonvulsant Drugs
  • Psychiatric and Neurodegenerative Disorders
  • Neuropsychopharmacology and Addiction
  • Educational Technology; Distance and Online Learning
