Interests

I am a clinical neuropsychologist and enjoy teaching various courses at Roosevelt at the doctoral level including Clinical Neuropsychology, Biopsychology, and Neuropsychological Assessment.  I also appreciate the opportunity Roosevelt provides to mentor doctoral students and to advise on dissertations.  I have extensive experience in the field, including working for many years as Senior Psychologist at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago and serving for more than 25 years on the faculty of Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.  I also have a private practice and have conducted more than 15,000 neuropsychological evaluations.

My Current Research

1.  Department of Defense, U.S. Military (DARPA) grant to develop a treatment program for cognitive and psychological effects of traumatic brain injuries (TBI) for U.S. servicemen injured in Iraq or Afghanistan.

2.  Development and validation of an alternate/equivalent form of the Wechsler Memory Scale-IV Logical Memory paragraphs.

3.  Validation of the Appraisals of Disability: Primary and Secondary Scale (ADAPSS) for use with spinal injured individuals and those with other disabilities.
