I am always happy to mentor Masters (M.A.) and Doctoral (Ph.D.) students through the Experimental/Applied or Clinical graduate programs in the Department of Psychology at the University of Regina. I also am open to taking on honors thesis project students in either the Experimental/Applied or Clinical areas. Please contact me if you’re interested in conducting research with me on:

  • risk-taking behavior
  • gambling and problem gambling
  • decision-making under risk and uncertainty
  • risk attitudes and perceptions
  • inequality and/or relative deprivation
  • personality and individual differences
  • addiction and mental health
  • evolutionary theory/evolutionary psychology

My research involves cognitive, social, and evolutionary aspects. I am happy to mentor students who are interested in any of these different areas as long as they are interested in the more specific topics above. I am always happy to hear from prospective students – please email me if you are interested in being part of the lab! I am dedicated to ensuring that all students who work with me have adequate opportunity to publish (as evidenced by my record of successful publications with students).
