Nicole is a behaviour analyst who specializes in the strategic science of instruction for both adult and child learners. She completed her doctoral degree in Applied Behavior Analysis and her Masters degree in Special Education at Columbia University. She has worked in both clinical and educational settings and consulted to a variety of organizations in North America, Europe, and Asia. Nicole is guided by a belief that scientific findings can improve the quality of educational systems and, through those systems, contribute to an improved quality of life for all the members of her communities–both large and small scale. She has published research articles and a book chapter, provided trainings for educators, parents and clinicians, and presented at many national and international conferences. Her research interests include organizational behaviour management, teaching and leadership from an operant perspective, and verbal behaviour development. She focuses primarily on single case research design methods as they are used in applied settings.
