Dave Palmer (Ph.D. University of Massachusetts, 1988) teaches behavioral psychology and statistics at Smith College, while also working part-time as a consulting psychologist at a program for adults with developmental disabilities. He is an ardent exponent of the views of B. F. Skinner (every department needs a token behaviorist!), and his principal activity is the clarification of the conceptual foundation of behavioral interpretations of human behavior. Dave lives in Leverett with his wife, Jill, daughters, Lindsay and Robin, two fine cats, and sundry chickens and pigeons.
