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. 

Current Projects
- Investigating the Impacts of Marine Debris Curriculum on Attitudes toward Marine Debris Prevention. (NOAA Grant)
- Investigating Methods to Increase STEM retention in the US Virgin Islands. 'SEAS Your Tomorrow' (NSF Grant)
