Research Interests:

My research interests span several areas. I continue investigating continuous motor performance (tracking), especially among the elderly and certain clinical populations. I have several projects on the psychology of aesthetic production and appreciation that are in various stages of completion. I also have an emerging research and teaching interest in Human-Animal Interaction (see recent work below).
