Education Research and Pedagogy Expertise

My educational research primarily focuses on student ideas and understanding ofof sociopolitically relevant energy scenarios.

Years teaching physics


Describe the courses that you teach

I teach introductory physics, experimental methods, climate change and various upper division physics courses.

What is your approach to integrating equity into physics instruction?

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.
