UPDATED: August 9, 2005


Early in my professional career my main interest was in the application of behavioral principles and methods to practical problems in the areas of mental illness, rehabilitation, mental retardation, education, business and industry; i.e. the area of behavior modification.


More recently my interests have been in the following areas:

  • Application and further development of B. F. Skinner's analysis of verbal behavior.

  • Motivation (establishing/motivating operations).

  • Improving the effectiveness (precision and accuracy) of behavioral terminology.

  • College instructional technology from a behavioral perspective.

  • History of behavior analysis.
