Psychology 106: Daily Living

Research Interests:

I am interested in self-management theory and procedures. My research is focused on using these procedures to reduce the personal and societal costs of common self-control problems such as over consumption of alcohol, high-risk sexual behavior over eating, anger difficulties.
