Email AddressResearch Interests
      The effects of interfaith religious education on psychological development of children. I am interested in gathering research data on the effectiveness of teaching multiple religious perspectives to children; I am looking for evidence that an integrative religious school would allow children to develop healthy, open-minded attitudes about religion in general, to cultivate socially positive values, and decide for themselves on which religion is right for them. Citations: My current research, funded by the Olfactory Research Fund, is in the area of workplace stress-reduction (in progress). However, I have recently changed my focus to explore religious education for children.
