Bio

I joined the Center for Advancing STEM Teaching, Learning, and Evaluation (CASTLE) in August 2017. Though I am listed under Chemistry and Material Science, my focus is on Physics Education. I am currently working on a NSF-funded grant to improve the admission and retention of women and minorities in graduate physics programs. Using a combination of research showing the shortcomings of traditional practices as well as research on the benefits of more holistic approaches to applications, we aim to shift graduate admissions in physics towards inclusive practices.
