RESEARCH INTERESTS

Though I am also interested in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL), my primary research area is on furthering our understanding of both healthy and unhealthy anger.  Specifically, my research focuses on evaluating cognitive theories of anger and better understanding electronic expressions of anger.
