Research Description

While my research background is in plant biology and plant-pathogen interactions, since coming to JMU my scholarship interests have shifted towards curriculum development and student learning. As part of the first-year initiative team, I have worked with other members of the department to develop a new and innovative lab curriculum, where we have successfully deployed a large-scale CURE (Course-embedded Undergraduate Research Experience). I am interested in exploring how participating in a CURE affects student learning.
