Research Description

My scientific interest focuses on comparative anatomy and physiology, particularly reproductive physiology. Previous research includes using in vitro incubation models to try and characterize factor(s) that lead to maternal recognition of pregnancy in horses. Main scholarly interest is the pedagogy and research regarding science education. The specific ideas I have focused on are pedagogy relating to improving student engagement and success through learner-centered teaching, investigating alternative models for classroom and laboratory instruction, and evidence-based teaching.
