Graduate student alumni
Matt Eckard, M.Sc.
Matt is a keen experimenter who has a variety of research interests within the experimental analysis of behavior. In March, 2017, Matt defended his masters thesis investigating effects of differential reinforcement of low rate schedules on interval timing. Matt is a doctoral student in Karen Anderson's lab at WVU.
Shrinidhi Subramaniam, Ph.D., BCBA-D
Shrinidhi Subramaniam is a talented behavior analyst with research interests that span basic and applied domains. She completed a Master’s thesis in the QAB Lab showing that covariation in choice and timing is modulated by environmental dynamics.
In April, 2016, Shrinidhi defended her dissertation evaluating functional relations between cue informativeness and temporal discrimination in pigeon and human interval timing.
Shrinidhi is a post doctoral fellow at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD.
Daniel Bell-Garrison, M.Sc.
Daniel's interest in behavior analysis was sparked during his B.A. at Gonzaga University. He joined the QAB Lab in 2014. His research interests include choice, the matching law, histories of reinforcement, behavioral economics. Daniel defended his Masters thesis, Within-session rapid acquisition of choice in pigeons, in 2016. Daniel is completing his Ph.D. in Andy Lattal's lab at WVU.
Alex Ward, M.Sc.
Alex joined the laboratory after earning a B.S. and an M.A. from Rowan University. He studies choice, gambling and substance abuse in laboratory and applied settings.
After graduating, Alex went back to Rowan teachclasses and reinvigorate their pigeon lab!
Nathaniel Rice, Ph.D.
Nathan came to WVU after earning a B.S. from the Georgia Institute of Technology. He completed a Master’s thesis investigating the roles of retention intervals and discriminative signals in the adaptation of temporal discrimination in a multiple peak-interval procedure. In December, 2014, Nathan defended his dissertation evaluating conditioned reinforcing effects of near wins. He is interested in quantitative models of behavior, temporal learning and animal models of gambling.
Nathan is a post-doctoral researcher for the Army at Aberdeen Proving Ground in Aberdeen MD.
Adam Fox, Ph.D.
Adam earned a B.S. and an M.A. from Western Michigan University. He defended his dissertation evaluating the efficacy of different events as time markers in interval schedules in April, 2013. Some of his other projects at WVU involved quantitative and behavioral analyses of computer users, basketball teams, horses and pigeons.
Adam is an Assistant Professor in the Psychology Department at St. Lawrence University, where he continues to investigate temporal control of behavior, choice, punishment and rule-governance.
