Dr. Emily Walter (she/hers) is an Associate Professor of Biology and Director of the STEM Education Center at California State University - Fresno. 

Her research focuses on college teaching and learning, operating at the interaction of claims, evidence, belief, and action. This includes research in science denial and on faculty and institutional change around active learning.

Research in the Walter Lab focuses on:

  • Encouraging Faculty and Institutions to Adopt and Sustain Active Learning Practices

  • Comprehensive Strategies against Science Denial (including public health, evolution, and climate change)

  • Retention and Persistence of underrepresented groups in STEM

The Walter lab provides a welcoming, diverse, inclusive, and equitable environment. We are a safe space for undocumented students.
