Teaching Research:

I am interested in developing activities that will help students to learn biological concepts and to improve their explanation skills and problem solving skills. I hope to analyze which learning tools are the most helpful in facilitating student learning. To this end, my research involves using concept inventories to probe student understanding and assess the effectiveness of learning activities.

Another of my pedagogical interests is analyzing the relationship between course learning outcomes and exam questions, with the goal of providing students with learning outcomes that clearly represent how they will be examined.
