My educational research primarily focuses on student ideas and understanding of sociopolitically relevant energy scenarios.
Describe the courses that you teach
I teach an introductory physics course which all students take at my school. I also teach a second year, advanced physics course which about 40% of our students take.
What does it mean to you to integrate science and equity?
I strive to sustain a classroom learning community in which students feel safe and supported as they engage with challenging scientific, social and political topics.
What else would you like to share with others in this learning community?
I am an editor for the Energy and Equity Vetted Library. I really enjoy working with colleagues to explore the physics, pedagogical strategies and equity connections of the activities that they share on portal.
