His teaching interests include Research Methods, Learning and Behavior, Sensation & Perception, Evolutionary Psychology, Physiological Psychology, and History & Systems. His research focuses on developing and employing desktop-computer virtual environments (VE) in which human participants can be tested on procedures that are analogous to those used for testing non-humans. The VE methodology has allowed him to make direct, systematic replications of non-human research, and test the generality of research findings across species.
