Education:

B.A., Chemistry, 2000 – Transylvania University
Ph.D., Chemistry, 2005 – University of Illinois

Research and Teaching Interests:

As a researcher, I am interested in studying pedagogical interventions that lead to improved student learning and success in STEM and gateway courses. I have published on the use of the flipped classroom and the impacts of intentionally metacognitive activities with students.

I am also interested in high-impact educational practices such as undergraduate research, service-learning, and global learning, and how these activities contribute to holistic student development. I enjoy leading workshops and group deliberative processes toward these topics with the aim of continuous improvement in higher education.

During my career, I have also taught an array of courses in the chemistry discipline, in Honors curricula, and in first-year seminar and composition.
