Associate Professor (tenured)
Ph.D. (2009), Auburn University
My primary research interest involves the classification of psychopathology, especially concerning mental health professionals’ use of the diagnostic system. I have studied cognitive processes involved in clinicians’ work, including diagnosis, case conceptualization and treatment planning. Currently, I am consulting for the World Health Organization on the field trials for the Mental and Behavioural Disorders chapter of the International Classification of Diseases as they work towards the eleventh revision. A second interest is the scholarship of teaching and learning, particularly investigating the qualities and behaviors of excellent teachers that lead to superior learning.
