Assistant Professor - Biology Educator

Research Interests:

I am a discipline-based education researcher, my focused interest is understanding how students learn biology related content. I am interested in how both formal and informal education activities (in-class activities, family programming, museums, etc) impact how students learn. My goal is to gain a better, evidenced-based, understanding of what impacts learning and find ways to retain students in STEM fields.
