Education and Work Experience


  • My degrees: undergraduate is from Smith College (Northampton, MA) with a major in physics and a minor in theater; masters is from DePaul University (Chicago, IL) in physics; doctorate in science education with a focus on physics education from Boston University (Boston, MA).


  • I was a postdoc at Western Michigan University (Kalamazoo, MI) for 3 years, working with Charles Henderson. Similar to now, my work varied from day to day as I was doing quite a bit of evaluation work along with research during that time.


  • I've remained in Michigan after my postdoc. Now I work as a consultant/project manager/evaluator/researcher on a plethora of projects- every day is a little different! If you are interested in working with me or are curious about my services, please check out this page.​

Research Areas/Interests

  • My work delves into postsecondary education and includes students (undergraduate and graduate), postdocs, staff, and faculty. I primarily work in physics education, but have worked with researchers from other STEM disciplines.

  • Much of my work involves some if not all of the following: sustainability and adoption of projects/innovations; equity and inclusion; studying research practices and methodologies; examining methodologies; and social experiences within STEM spaces, particularly learning spaces.

  • The most updated and easiest way to check out my publications is Google Scholar.
