Research/Areas of Interest

My early research focused on the physiology of aquatic organisms, but more recently I have begun research in the area of bioeducation.  Overall, I am interested in how students become more expert-like in their thinking and how they begin to act more like scientists.  I have developed a course-based undergraduate research expereince (CURE) for use in our introductory biology course and am working with colleagues to assess its impact on students.  I am also examining student metacognitive abilities and how these abilities impact student success in introductory biology courses.
