My quest as a professional is to make science accessible, useful, and meaningful to everyone. Most of my research is done in postsecondary education settings (colleges and universities) and examines impacts of active, student-centered, and creative teaching and learning practices on student success. Our projects frequently prioritize how we can best support historically marginalized people in STEM, including women and people of color. I am also a scholar of organizational and systemic change and enjoy strategic planning around key priorities.
