Research Interests

My research interests are in the Analysis of behavior, Behavioral pharmacology and Comparative cognition (ABC lab). Current research is focusing on remembering and concept learning and studying drug effects on complex behavior. I also have interests in the field of comparative cognition: seeking the roots of human conceptual behavior in non-humans. Graduate and undergraduate students are active collaborators in all of my research.

For more information about my research visit the ABC lab website .
