Research Interests

My research examines how emotion recognition skills change in adulthood and often involves investigating research questions using behavioral and/or electrophysiological measures. Some of my work also focuses on emotion/cognition interactions to explore how the emotional nature of stimuli influence attention, categorization, and decision making.  You can learn more about my lab's work by visiting my lab page: Lifespan Social Cognition Lab 

Please contact me by phone or e-mail (drmski@wku.edu) or stop by my office if you are interested in chatting about our projects. If you are a student who is interested in possibly gaining some research experience, please drop by my office or send me an e-mail and we can set up an appointment to talk. Students who are applying to our master’s program and might be interested in working with me should also contact me by e-mail, and we can set up a time to talk about the lab, the graduate program, and life in Bowling Green at WKU.

Teaching Interests

My teaching interests include instruction on the psychological processes that change as we grow older (e.g., cognitive, social, and emotional development). Senior citizens are a valuable part of our community, so I am committed to helping students learn about those factors underlying the decisions and lifestyles of today's active seniors. I also teach experimental psychology courses in statistics and cognition that emphasize hands-on learning so that students are learning “how-to” in psychological science as well as theory. Students who are trained in my research lab are actively involved in research design, including stimulus development and simple programming to create automated tasks and surveys to standardize data collection.
