Research Areas

  • My research focuses on implementing Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) in applied settings (Response to Intervention and Positive Behavior Support). This includes evaluating professional development efforts in K-12 settings and identifying the supports necessary to make MTSS implementation more effective. Additionally, I am interested in working with students with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Specifically, determining effective and efficient methods of conducting behavioral assessments that will lead to the development of evidence-based interventions. 

Degrees

  • Doctor of Philosophy, Ph.D., University of California, Riverside, School Psychology
  • Master of Education, M.Ed., University of California, Riverside, School Psychology
  • Bachelor of Arts, B.A., California State University, San Bernardino, Psychology
