Research Interests

I am interested in the use of active learning strategies to improve retention of students from diverse backgrounds. I use in-class strategies to promote active engagement in course material, as well as project-based learning to maximize opportunities for hands-on collaborative learning. Additionally, I enjoy the creative process of integrating research and teaching during the development of a Course-based Undergraduate Research Experience (CURE).
