Welcome to the website for the UMB-SAIL Lab, located within the Counseling and School Psychology Department at the University of Massachusetts Boston. We conduct research aimed to promote student learning by utilizing evidence-based, effective and culturally relevant behavioral supports for youth and relevant stakeholders. Our scholarship is primarily applied and behavior analytic in nature, aligned with the UMB College of Education and Human Development commitment to anti-racism and community-engaged research. 


Here you will find information about our team, current and past projects, and contact information if you are interested in learning more about what we do.
