The Center on Disability and Development at Texas A&M University welcomes Dr. Robert Maddalozzo

November 30, 2020

The Center welcomes Dr. Robert Maddalozzo Robert started his career in K-12 education as a general education teacher, with a focus on history, though he also taught science courses. His experiences led him to explore special education as a career.

While in special education, he became interested in opportunities for change through research and meaningful interventions. This led him to working towards his Ph.D. at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). These experiences helped to guide his interest in exploring options for supporting students with disabilities in taking on an increased role in their own lives, as a way of decreasing behaviors and also increasing the opportunities for all students. Robert's research has been heavily influenced by his experiences and identifying gaps for further exploration.

At the Center he will be assisting with the coordination of NIRS data activities, center-wide research activities, research coordination, grant writing, and other ways to support the program.
