My interests and work are focused at the intersections of science, art, technology, and education. At heart, I’m a curriculum developer. I am driven by the quest to create experiences that engage learners: fostering a sense of wonder and interest that can sustain them through difficult material or questions. There are few things I like better than to work with other faculty to explore the possibilities of educational experiences.
Currently, my position at MSU supports these passions in three distinct roles: Assistant Dean of STEM Education Teaching and Learning in the Associate Provost for Undergraduate Education’s Office, Digital Curriculum Coordinator for the College of Natural Science, and the Associate Director for the Center for Integrative Studies in General Science. In these roles I support curriculum reform, develop faculty professional development, and help to develop institutional structures to support interdisciplinary STEM education.
