Research Interests: My current research focus concerns the study of predictors of career choice behavior. I am ultimately interested in the development of a model that will allow for the prediction of career paths at various stages of professional development. I am also interested in the various assessment tools that might be used in helping (i.e., coaching) executives to fine-tune career decisions.

Historically, my research has involved the use of applied behavioral strategies to address large-scale organizational and community problems. Some of the focus areas found within my publications include, safety belt use in organizational settings, illegal use of public parking reserved for those with disabilities, and way-finding strategies in retail environments.
