My current research involves collection and analysis of both quantitative and qualitative data regarding student experiences, performance and engagement in science education from elementary school through graduate school.
I currently teach courses in secondary science methods and graduate seminars at the School of Education around making and the development of interest in STEM education. In addition, I lead a seminar for doctoral students in STEM fields who plan to pursue academic careers and are interested in improving their teaching practices based on research.
