Chemistry Education Research

About Me

I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the University of Michigan, studying how teachers implement culturally relevant education within Indigenous communities. I have a Masters degree in Chemistry, where I studied the diagnosis of protective coating quality on sculptures using non-destructive techniques. I earned my Ph.D. in Chemistry in 2019 from Portland State University where I researched aspects of student science and chemistry identity within general and organic chemistry courses. I then went to East Carolina University where I studied student proficiency in scientific practices through Argument-Driven Inquiry as a Postdoctoral Scholar. My current research projects aim to bring equity-centered research methods to the forefront of Chemistry Education Research.
