I was an undergraduate at Jersey City State College (now New Jersey City University) from '75 to '79 and majored in philosophy and also in psychology. It was there that I was first introduced to parapsychology by taking courses from Michael Grosso. Subsequently, I attended St. John's University ('79-'81) where I earned a M.A. in general experimental psychology and was fortunate to have been assigned to Rex Stanford as his research assistant. From there I went over to the Newark campus of Rutgers where I earned a Ph.D. in Cognitive Studies in '89. That same year, I was hired as an assistant professor of psychology at the Staten Island campus of St. John's where I have remained ever since. While I have maintained an interest in parapsychology over the years, my main research is in the areas of academic and research integrity with special emphasis on various unethical writing and authorship practices, particularly plagiarism.
