Research Interests

Neuropsychological assessment, treatment, and forensic issues are the primary focus of research in our research laboratory. Research studies are ongoing on the factors contributing to malingering and poor effort in neuropsychological testing, and the likelyhood of these problems occurring in a nonforensic context of evaluation.

Additional areas of research include factors related to driving skills among persons who have sustained neurological injuries, and the social implications of being a disabled individual in society.
