I received my Ph.D. from the University of Denver in 1986 and joined the Department of Psychology faculty at the University of Kentucky in 1988.
I have been very involved in undergraduate education at UK. In November 2011, the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching and the Council for Advancement and Support of Education named me the Kentucky Professor of the Year. I was recognized for this award at the University of Kentucky 2012 Founders Day Ceremony.
I received the Chancellor's Award for Teaching in 1994 and 1998 and the College of Arts and Sciences Outstanding Teacher Award in 2006. In addition, I recently served a three-year term as a Chellgren Center on Undergraduate Education Endowed Professor.
My primary research interest is jurors' reactions to various types of abuse, including child abuse, elder abuse, and domestic abuse. I also have a research interest in understanding the effect of instructions to forget on memory (i.e., intentional forgetting).
