• My professional interests are in K-12 Science education and science education research, particularly field experiences where teachers and students are immersed in science. I help to provide teacher professional development workshops and work to bring teachers and scientists together in order to make real-world, relevant connections for students in science courses. I also have a strong interest in citizen science. My personal interests mesh with my professional interests as I enjoy wildlife watching, outdoor writing and photography, hiking, and running.
