Research Interests

Primary research interests fall in the areas of the Experimental and Applied Analysis of Behaviour. Several research projects have investigated the role of self-control on addictive and health related behaviours, as well as human and animal performance on schedules of reinforcement, and research areas and comparative cognition.  Research interests all focus on either the experimental or applied analysis of behaviour.

Professor Bizo was formerly the President of the Society for the Quantitative Analyses of Behavior (SQAB), and has served on the editorial board of the Journal for the Experimental Analyses of Behavior.
