I am Assistant Professor of Psychology at Penn State Brandywine.
Scholarly-type things that don't fit elsewhere sometimes appear on my personal blog.
- Linguistics in Provence, Spring 2017
Penn State Brandywine will offer The Study of Language (LING 001; GS, US, IL), along with Historical Linguistics (LING 102; GH) and French Linguistics (FR 316), as part of its Spring 2017 Global Programs trip to Provence and the French Riviera. These courses will cover all the basics of linguistics, with a focus on French, related romance languages, and other languages of the region, along with sociolinguistic and cultural issues in France. Coursework is primarily online with travel over spring break.
- RAs win research award
Research team members Corey Young, Antonio Nicosia, Brian Fairfield, Lori Ezzedine, and Guy Mauro were among the winners of the Social Science and Humanities Research Award at EURECA at Penn State Brandywine for their poster, Effects of singing on melodic interval perception training.

- Apply to be a Research Assistant
I'm always looking for students interested in being Research Assistants in my lab. This is a great way to get experience with research. Review the research page for more details on our projects. No particular experience is necessary, but a basic understanding of research methods (such as that learned in Psych301W) and strong quantitative skills are helpful, as is any language study or music theory experience. Please email me with any questions, and if you're interested in applying, send a statement of your interest, a current transcript, and the name and contact information of an academic reference.
- Research participants needed
If you're a Brandywine student with an hour to spare, please email me to find out how to participate in a language and music perception study. I am also interested in meeting speakers of Mandarin, Cantonese, Yoruba, Thai, and Vietnamese in the Philadelphia region.
