Education:

PhD, Arizona State University, 2015, Sustainable Engineering
MS, University of Pittsburgh, 2012, Civil Engineering
BS, Michigan State University, 2009, Environmental Microbiology & Biology

Research Interests:

My research interests include developing active, experiential-learning activities on topics of NAE Engineering Grand Challenges, UN Sustainable Development Goals, sustainability for civil engineers, and assessment of student-learning outcomes and motivation towards these topics, with emphasis on online platforms for delivering these educational opportunities and service-oriented engineering programs in which students can take actions towards these topics. As a Kolbe™ Certified Consultant, I use conative assessment to empower individuals with diverse problem-solving instincts to improve productivity, communication, leadership, and impact the diversity of engineers as global change-makers.
