Assistant Professor of Psychology William Peace University
Currently I'm an Assistant Professor at William Peace University. It's first year as a full-time instructor. I earned my Ph.D. in Social, Cognitive, and Neuroscience from the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) and my Master's degree in Cognitive Behavioral Sciences from Illinois State University (ISU). The majority of my training has been in Cognitive Psychology. For the past several years, my main research interests surround several aspects of bilingualism, more specifically how words are represented across their two languages. A more recent interest of mine has been conducting research in the classroom. Other than just being a researcher, I am also an instructor. Thus far, I've had the opportunity to teach Introduction to Psychology, Statistical Methods, and a research methods writing lab. This year I finally get to teach a course in my area, Cognitive (yay!). Teaching is awesome! Engaging with the students and seeing them grow is an irreplaceable and fulfilling feeling. To document some of my experiences and musings about teaching, I joined The Novice Professor team.
