Current Research

My current research revolves around the scholarship of teaching and learning chemistry. In particular, assisting students in becoming as efficient as possible at learning the material for their chemistry coursework. This work involves exploring options for in-class and out-of-class quizzing to determine which is most effective. Another area we are exploring is restructuring our chemistry curriculum for non-chemistry majors to help students retain the particular knowledge that will be necessary for them to use in upper-division and professional school courses.
