My research interests are primarily related to the application of psychology to sport and exercise performance. In my dissertation research I applied Social Cognitive Theory to account for hazing perpetration in varsity athletics. I am also interested in performance enhancing strategies in sport as well as coping skill development in cancer survivors.
