Research Focus

My research interests lie in institutional change for the benefit of diversity and inclusion in STEM. Specifically I'm focused on how the university can support students in transition (i.e. helping students navigate educational transition periods like freshmen, transfers, and and graduates into academia or industry) and how to best empower faculty to support students in their success at the university level. I have previous experience in exploring the impact of a first-year program on student's sense of belonging and self-efficacy, as well as understanding faculty teaching practices regarding the adoption of active learning.
