I am a professor of science education fascinated by science, culture and communication. I am interested in how people communicate with each other in science (in classrooms, labs and online) and how they develop their own interest, dedication and persistence in science. At the University of Alberta, I teach graduate courses in sociology of science, scientific language, and mixed-methods research.
My undergraduate courses include science teaching methods and physical sciences for teachers. As a researcher, I am pleased to be a member of the NSERC-funded Centre for Research in Youth Science, Teaching and Learning (CRYSTAL-Alberta) and the Centre for Math Science and Technology Education (CMaSTE).

Research Interests


Online science communication; scientific language and texts; identities and social structures in science-related settings; research ethics, and communications between researchers and participants.
