Research Interests

My current research interests span two distinct areas. The first is human-animal interaction. This includes basic phenomena of how and under what circumstances we bond with our pets or companion animals, and more specifically, what is the nature of cognitive processing of pet-related information. The second area is the study of the psychology of art, and what cognitive processing is involved in the creation, and appreciation of art.

Previously, I published widely in the areas of human motor performance, and in the broad area of human learning and memory.
