With a background in physics and philosophy, I currently conduct research on physics education, science education more generally, and engineering education. Interests include how students and teachers decide, in the moment and also more broadly, to focus on deep understanding, and what they view as "deep understanding" and how to pursue it. I'm also interested in how science and engineering students conceptualize and navigate ethical issues as they pursue their studies and proceed into their professions.
