Molecular Biology, Cellular Biology & Biology Education

Research Interest

My research focuses on making improvements in science education.  With regards tocurriculum, I am interested in high school biology and college introductory biology coursework and the transition from high school to university studies.  Current research on curriculum improvements have explored the positioning of genomics in biology education using introductory biology textbooks as a benchmark.  Another goal is to explore means of improving student learning through the development of new tools for active learning and the assessment of current tools.
