Teaching and Psychological Research
After an extended stint in Oberlin's administration, in 1995 I returned to the Psychology Department as an active member. I teach: Psychobiological Perspectives on the Arts, Visual Communication, and Sensory Processes and Perception.
I have long been fascinated with the initial stages of experience. My early research was in auditory psychophysics (especially binaural phenomena). My current research interests are largely in archaeology
In addition to my work as a psychologist, I have published several papers with my spouse, Susan Kane, who is a classical archeologist in Oberlin's Department of Art. From 1995 through 1997, I served as Information Technologist for the excavation at Poggio Colla and in that capacity published a CD-ROM, Poggio Colla: The 1995 Season. More recently, I have worked as chief financial officer and information technologist in Italy with the Sangro Valley Project and in Libya with the Cyrenaica Archaeological Project.
Among my hobbies are:
- music, especially the Grateful Dead, Pink Floyd, and the Cleveland Orchestra.
- dogs, especially Border Terriers.
- sports spectating -- America's Cup, Cleveland sports teams, especially the Indians and Browns, Oberlin College sports teams.
