Here you’ll find a list of my publications. I will update these with links and when possible .pdfs. Links to the journal websites may be preferable as they will likely allow one to download the citation into your reference manager of choice (e.g. Endnote). However, journals may require access through a university library. I wish I could afford to publish entirely in open-access journals, but unfortunately the main journals in the field are not open access.

Please feel free to email me if you’d like a .pdf of any of these.  Some may be available on my ResearchGate profile or Google Scholar profile.
