Jennifer Austin and Daniel Conine, faculty members in the Department of Learning Sciences have been appointed to the board of associate editors for the journal Behavior Analysis in Practice.
Behavior Analysis in Practice is an official journal of the Association for Behavior Analysis International. It provides science-based, best-practice information relevant to service delivery in behavior analysis.
Austin has worked as a behavior analytic researcher and clinician for more than 20 years. Her research and clinical interests have focused primarily on behavior analytic applications in schools and applying this science to populations that are relatively underserved by the field, including prisoners, children in mainstream education and children who have experienced abuse and neglect.
Conine is a Board Certified Behavior Analyst — Doctoral and serves as program coordinator for the college’s applied behavior analysis master’s program. He conducts research on behavior-analytic interventions for individuals with autism, with an emphasis on skill acquisition and verbal behavior. His research focuses on improving the efficiency of intervention by targeting behavioral cusps, incorporating preference and reinforcer assessments, and studying strategies that promote generalization, maintenance and emergent learning.
