I am a professor at Temple University in the College of Education and Human Development. I belong to both the School Psychology and Educational Leadership programs.

Although I have diverse interests, my primary focus is trying to understand and improve the validity of psychological assessment practices. I teach courses in assessment, counseling, statistics, and research methods.

I grew up in Southern California (1970–1990) and lived in C√≥rdoba, Argentina (1990–1992). I completed my undergraduate degree in Psychology at the University of California at Berkeley in 1995 and my doctoral studies in clinical psychology at Texas A&M University in 2003. My internship year (2001–2002) was spent in the Dutchess County Department of Behavioral & Community Health in Poughkeepsie, NY. Since then I have been a faculty member at Illinois State University (2002–2017) and Temple University (2017–Present).
