Research Interests

My primary areas of interest are developing student-centered and inclusive astronomy pedagogies as well as community outreach in STEAM, specifically in astronomy. The thrust of my work is to develop broad scientific literacy and confidence amongst my students, to provide access to the wonders of science for our community, and to create partnerships with the greater astronomical community so that we can augment our world-class facilities and curate a truly exceptional experience for our students.
