My current research interests focus on issues in STEM education. I am involved in identifying factors that lead students to pursue a career as a science teacher, and those factors that decrease attrition rates especially in high needs areas. In addition, I am interested in bolstering the P-12 pipeline to the university by increasing the content knowledge and pedagogical content knowledge of elementary, middle and high school teachers. The goals of this research are to provide higher quality science instruction in the public schools and increase the quality and quantity of teachers that enter as STEM educators.
