Greetings! I have been with the Psychology Program Group (formerly the Centre for Psychology) at Athabasca University since 2002. It has been an exciting time to be part of such a dynamic group, and to be actively involved with the growing demand of online education. My area of specialization is in behavioural neuroscience, commonly referred to as biological psychology. The task of behavioural neuroscience is to explain behaviour in terms of brain functioning - that is, it denotes a biological approach to the study of psychology. Since joining AU I have been able to combine my interests in technology with teaching psychology and neuroscience.
