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, the College of Arts & Sciences Outstanding Teacher Award in 2006, and the College of Arts & Sciences Excellance in Teaching Large Classes Award in 2016. In addition, I am a fellow at the Chellgren Center on Undergraduate Education Endowed Professor.
My primary research interest is jurors' reactions to various types of victimization, including child abuse, elder abuse, stalking, adult rape, and domestic abuse.
