a bit about me:

I am a marine invertebrate biologist, educator, and discipline-based education researcher who studies the roles individuals play within different types of collaborative systems. My research seeks to better understand the mechanisms behind division of labor in colonial marine animals and cooperative learning among students in natural science courses.  I am intrigued by the transformative learning that can occur within field experiences and care deeply about making field-oriented courses more inclusive to all students.
