Personal Information
I completed my graduate training in the social psychology program at the University of Kentucky in 1998. This picture of me and my committee was taken right after I defended my dissertation. My research interests include culture and social behavior, attribution, social influence, and prevention research. More specific information about my research interests and professional experience can be found in my vita

Recent research projects include: (a) the influence of gender on self-reported procrastination, (b) attitudes toward women, (c) religiosity and academic misconduct, (d) attitudes toward police deception, (e) sexism and religion, and (f) a cross-cultural investigation of beliefs in a just world and empathy.

During the Fall 2002, I earned promotion to the rank of Associate Professor. Valdosta State University has a social function, hosted by the office of alumni relations, to honor those who were granted promotion and/or tenure. During the reception, one is given an honorary gift and has their picture taken with the President of Valdosta State University and the President of the alumni association. During Fall 2003, I earned tenure and attended a similar social function. In Spring 2008, my promotion to the rank of full professor was approved.
