Recent courses

In recent years, I have taught Introduction to Psychology, The Psychology of Prejudice, Human-Animal Relations, and The Psychology of Religion. I have also taught Psychology and Diversity, Social Psychology and Psychology of Gender.

Thesis Supervision

Each year I supervise a small number of students conducting an honours thesis. I am happy to talk with students who might be interested in working with me. My current research examines the nature of and influences on people's beliefs about and attitudes toward non-human animals and the environment. In particular, I study how these types of attitudes share dynamics in common with human intergroup attitudes (respect, prejudice). I am also interested in a variety of issues related to health and physical fitness. If you are interested in doing an Honour’s thesis with me please consult my research page for more information about my research interests and contact me to discuss your ideas.
