Emily M. Walter, PhD


I am an Assistant Professor of Biology and Director of the STEM Education Center at California State University - Fresno.


My research focuses on:

  • Fostering evidence-based instructional practices in postsecondary STEM education

  • Key elements of scientific literacy (in particular, evolution education)

  • Professional development of faculty and graduate students

  • Retention and persistence of women and underrepresented groups in STEM


My current course offerings at Fresno State include general education biology (BIOL 10), Earth, Life and Environmental Science for future elementary teachers (NSCI 115), and a graduate course in College Science Teaching (BIOL 270T).
