Research Interests

I serve as the Director of the Performance Management Laboratory at KU where my students and I conduct translational and applied research. A majority of my research is conducted within a behavioral consultation model with community organizations and seeks to identify effective and resource-efficient practices to promote behavior change of employees, educators, and other consultees. In addition, my research facilities include on-campus laboratories that allow us to answer translational questions in a highly-controlled setting.

My primary research interests fall within Organizational Behavior Management, a subfield of applied behavior analysis, and Behavioral Consultation. I am interested in exploring the degree to which treatment integrity influences client outcomes, developing efficient and effective training procedures, quality improvement systems, and performance management within service delivery settings.

Service and Professional Interests

I have served on the editorial boards of Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, Journal of Behavioral Education, Behavior Analysis in Practice, School Psychology Review, and Journal of Early and Intensive Behavior Intervention. In addition, I have been asked to provide guest editorial reviews for Journal of Organizational Behavior Management, Education and Treatment of Children, Journal of School Psychology, Child and Family Behavior Therapy, School Psychology Quarterly, Journal of Intellectual Disability Research, International Journal of Behavioral Consultation and Therapy, and Assessment for Effective Intervention.

Currently, I sit on the Executive Committee as Secretary of the Board of Directors for the Association for Science in Autism Treatment and serve on the Board of Governors for the Mid-American Association for Behavior Analysis. I am also a Board Member for Community Living Opportunities and sit on the Quality Assurance Committee. I have been involved with the Berkshire Association for Behavior Analysis and Therapy as a member of the Student Relations Committee. In 2005-2006, I served on the Board of Advisors for the Families for Effective Autism Treatment of Central New York.
