Course Information

At Pacific University, all faculty teach a variety of different courses. Typically, we do not use graduate teaching assistants, which means that your classes will be taught by professors and that you will have plenty of opportunities to get to know the faculty in your discipline.

Below I have listed some of the courses that I teach. We are always developing and trying out new classes, so the list may change now and then.

EXIP 400 | Advanced Analysis in Kinesiology

EXIP 498/499 | Senior Research I & II

EXMB 200 | Exercise Science Foundations

EXMB 321 | Teaching Physical Activity

EXMB 315 | Adapted Physical Activity

EXMB 366 | Human Motor Development

Areas of Research & Specialization

My specialization within the department is in physical activity pedagogy, and my research interests mainly revolve around the use of the principles of applied behavior analysis in physical activity settings.
