Find out more about projects I am currently working on. I was lucky enough to travel to India, Bangladesh and Nepal in 2007 to train teacher in water testing. We used Google Docs to help teachers collaborate.
Previous to joining the CIESE, I taught high school science for five years (Earth Science, Astronomy, Physics). In addition, I have participated on a number of research projects at the university level (including one in the tropical rain forests of Costa Rica) as well as worked in Alaska as a marine observer. I graduated from Cornell University twice; once with a B.S. in Agricultural Engineering and another time with a M.A.T. in Science Education.
I am always looking for ways to teach science and engineering in a way that models real world activities or solves real world type problems. Learning should be engaging; not because I entertain or the technology is cool, but because the quest for knowledge exists in everyone but is often stifled by what we call school.
