Research Interests: 

How inclusion of civic issues, international connections, and social engagement alters the cognitive and affective responses of non- major science students to science education. How course design impacts the demographics (gender, race, etc) of student enrollment in elective science courses. Developing international science courses. The factors that impact educational outcomes for girls in rural Kenya. The impact of sustainable school gardens on anthropomorphic and cognitive outcomes in primary school children in Western Kenya.
