Research Interests

My research interests lie broadly in the experimental analysis of behavior. Elucidating behavioral principles in the laboratory with nonhuman animals sheds light on the fundamental processes underlying socially relevant behavior in humans. My specific areas of research include behavioral economics, behavioral pharmacology, animal models of drug abuse, schedules of reinforcement, and issues associated with aversive control. I also maintain an active interest in the philosophy of behaviorism.
