I’m a physics education researcher who studies how tools and science practices affect student learning in physics, and the conditions and environments that support or inhibit this learning. I conduct research from the high school to the upper-division and am particularly interested in how students learn physics through their use of tools such as mathematics and computing. My work employs cognitive and sociocultural theories of learning and aims to blend these perspectives to enhance physics instruction at all levels. My projects range from the fine-grained (e.g., how students understand particular elements of code) to the course-scale (e.g., how students learn to model systems in electromagnetism) to the very broad (e.g., how does computing affect learning across a degree program?). Presently, I co-direct the Physics Education Research Lab at MSU.
