Area(s) of Expertise

The design and development of resources for chemistry instruction requires a strong background in chemistry and a rigorous educational perspective in order to assess their impact on the processes of instruction and learning. Our research focuses on the visualization of chemical phenomena from a variety of angles including the promotion of spatial-perceptual skills, pedagogies to effectively build knowledge integration, development of representational competency, and the use of manipulatives/models to facilitate conceptual understanding.
