Ally Salzer

Primary office:


Ally Salzer (CPDT-KA) is a doctoral student in KU's Behavioral Psychology program, a student of Dr. Derek Reed in the Applied Behavioral Economics Laboratory, and a behavior consultant at Beyond the Dog, LLC. Her recent research interests focus on the intersection of basic behavioral processes with canines and applied animal behavior. She aims to help bridge the gap between animal training and behavior analysis through empirical study of the behavioral mechanisms underlying canine behavior. Beyond animal training, she is interested in behavioral economic predictors of substance use and abuse, particularly with alcohol, cigarettes, and cannabis. She is also interested in studying how measures of delay discounting and demand inform treatment interventions in special populations. Upon completion of her PhD, Ally aims to promote Behavior Analysis through teaching and research.
