I have a PhD in psychology from the University of Edinburgh, am a part-time Professor of Psychology in the School of Behavioral and Social Sciences at Northcentral University, a Research Fellow at the Parapsychology Foundation, and the co-director of The Alvarado Zingrone Institute for Research and Education (The AZIRE), a virtual education project of mine and my husband Dr. Carlos S. Alvarado's consulting firm, Alvarado, Zingrone & Associates (formerly Alvarado Consulting).
My primary passion is providing educational opportunities in the scientific and scholarly approaches to seemingly psychic phenomena and experience. My second passion is psychology as a research discipline, its history and systems and basic research methods and statistics. And I am greatly interesting in the methodologies of teaching online including project-based learning, using Moodle and WizIQ for teaching, and the use of virtual worlds in higher education and adult education.
My personal projects include the blog, Thinking about Learning, the YouTube channel, Teaching and Learning Online, and the website and YouTube Channel, Parapsychology Online.
