I am a Regents Professor and Lawrence L. Boger Professor of International Studies in the Department of Psychology at Oklahoma State University and hold adjunct appointments in the Department of Entomology and Plant Pathology and the Department of Integrative Biology. As a comparative psychologist with extensive international experience, I have published over 200 papers/book chapters and 17 books in the area of comparative psychology which he defines as the application of the comparative method to problems in psychology. Many of these publications describe hands-on inquiry based student activities using a variety of organisms, including humans. I have created numerous programs including the “Psych Museum” and the “Psych Mobile,” as well. I have received many awards for teaching and research at the national, state, and local levels including the 2003 Robert S. Daniel Teaching Excellence Award of the Society for the Teaching of Psychology, American Psychological Association, and the 2012 Oklahoma Foundation for Excellence in Teaching Medal for Research University Teaching. As a comparative psychologist, I have worked with many different organisms including planarians, ants, bee, fish, snakes, elephants, and humans in a variety of applied and basic research topics. These topics include the development of a social insect model of ethanol induced behavior, the development of a mathematical model of the learning process, the use of learning assays to study the effect of agrochemicals on honey bees, and basic questions related to the comparative analysis of intelligence.
