Research Interests

Main research interests include applications of behavioral momentum theory (BMT), purpose and reduction of stereotypical behaviors, and autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Additional research interests include experimental analysis of behavior (application of behavior analytic principles and procedures with animals), translational research, attention, compliance, and reduction of challenging behaviors, including self-injurious behaviors (SIBs).

Previous research has included the use of response interruption and redirection (RIRD) to reduce vocal stereotypy maintained by automatic reinforcement. Current research examines the effects of similar and dissimilar high-probability request topographies on compliance with low-probability requests.
