About Curtis: I am currently working on my doctoral dissertation which is a quantitative experimental design.

I love the scientific aspects of psychology including research design, analysis, statistics, and the excitement of the research process. I have spent the last six years working at the community college level teaching courses in psychological sciences including research methods. In my personal life, I like to spend time with my two adult children and my granddaughter.
