Assistant Professor of Physics at Pennsylvania State University, Greater Allegheny
I am an Assistant Professor of Physics at Penn State Greater Allegheny, near Pittsburgh. My research area is Physics Education Research. I have three principle research projects currently underway. One looks at student understanding of energy, particularly the connections they make between energy in physics and in chemistry. Another examines students’ metacognition - how well students recognize what things they know and what they don’t know. Finally, I’m researching the development of students’ reasoning skills in introductory physics courses.
