I am interested in factors that shape students' and faculty members' experiences in math and science education departments. My research has been focused on factors related to motivation and persistence with respect to math and science tasks and course-taking, the role of communication in learning and research progress, and the socio-cultural norms of science education programs-and how these norms shape communication practices.
