My students and I conduct discipline-centered education research in the field of biology. We have a diversity of research foci situated in the complex classroom ecology formed between interactions of students, instructors, and the content within various learning environments. We also employ multiple research methodologies.

My current research interests are

  • Examining instructor knowledge, beliefs, and implementation efficacy of research based instructional strategies and the impact of professional development
  • Interactions of student and teacher goal orientations on earning

I am always interested in talking to highly-motivated potential graduate students. Check out the
Math Science Education Ph.D. program at MTSU or the M.S. in Biology for more information.
