Welcome to my personal website (see disclaimer). I developed this site as a hub for organizing my online activity.
I am an Associate Professor in the Counseling Psychology Program in the Department of Psychology at the University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg, MS. I teach graduate courses in the assessment and diagnosis of mental disorders, group therapy, and other core counseling psychology courses. At the undergraduate level, I currently teach abnormal psychology and forensic psychology.
My research focuses on overt and relational aggression, cyber aggression, dysfunctional anger, and clinical traffic psychology (e.g., the role of driver personality in accident-related behaviors). Much of my current work is aimed at exploring the role of normal and dark personality traits (e.g., psychopathy, narcissism) in a variety of aggressive behaviors. You can learn more about my research by visiting the Anger and Traffic Psychology Lab.
I serve as Director of the Community Counseling and Assessment Clinic, the in-house training clinic of the Counseling Psychology Program. Graduate students in counseling psychology provide counseling and assessment services in the clinic under the supervision of program faculty.
