RESEARCH EXPERIENCES

My current research agenda involves short interval timing research, mostly focusing on the effects of attention on time perception. I'm also currently researching predictive factors of online student success. Finally, I'm investigating how varsity eSports membership affects student outcomes compared to traditional athletes in a collegiate atmosphere.
