About me

I received my doctoral degree in Psychology and Social Behavior from the University of California, Irvine. Before attending UC Irvine, I earned my Master of Arts degree in Clinical Psychology at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. I am currently an Associate Professor in the Psychology department at the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP). My research focuses on using psychology to inform best practices in the criminal justice system, and I strive to integrate clinical and social psychological methodologies.
