I am a Research Assistant Professor in the Physics Department with the Physics Education Research Group at the University of Maryland, College Park. I am also Director of the Maryland Learning Assistant Program and an active leader, “LAgent,” within the National Learning Assistant Alliance. My research agenda focuses on modeling 1) change and development, and 2) the ways in which instructional contexts shape (and are shaped by) participants. These central themes guide my work in understanding how to best foster both faculty and student learning. I pursue projects that have high potential for leveraging equitable change in undergraduate STEM programs and I make these struggles for change a direct focus of my research efforts.
