Associate Professor
Areas of Interest: 
Chemistry Education

Broadly speaking, my research interests involve examining laboratory experiences from the perspectives of a student in a teaching lab, a researcher in a research experience and the instructor teaching in the laboratory setting.  Current projects include examining the use and implementation of pedagogies such as the Science Writing Heuristic (SWH) and Argument-Driven Inquiry (ADI) in getting student to make evidence based claims, and aligning these goals and professional development with the Next Generation Science Education Standards (NGSS).
