Education Research and Engagement

When I’m not in the classroom, I work with students (especially at the undergraduate level) in a research lab where we work together on the project’s critical path. I have found so many exciting opportunities to teach computing just-in-time with the contextual grounding of answering questions through experimental science.

As a graduate student, I was as an NSF GK-12 Fellow, working with teachers to integrate concepts from our research into classroom activities that bridge STEM and the arts and humanities. In my faculty role, I was a member of the Drexel University Center for the Advancement of STEM Teaching and Learning Excellence (CASTLE), working to research, implement, and assess experiential pedagogy with colleagues from across the university.

I am a member of the Computer Science Teachers Association (CSTA), with collaborators at the CSTA»Philly and Longwood chapters.
