Faculty Overview

Dr. Scribner’s research interests are spread between two realms: mineralogy and geoscience education. Her mineralogy research focuses on the rare-element pegmatites, specifically those that are thought to have been contaminated by their host rocks. Contamination can modify the chemical signature and mineralogy of pegmatites through the introduction of chemical elements from the host rock. Her geoscience education research involves the development of concept inventories, which are validated assessments that can be used to measure conceptual understanding.
