Auburn University Main Campus
I am an Earth System Science PhD Candidate at Auburn University. My research employs quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods approaches to understand teaching and learning about the Earth system and the development of Earth systems thinking skills in undergraduate students. In particular, my research aims to develop tools to measure students' Earth systems thinking skills. My research is largely shaped by my own background and interests in biogeochemistry, geobiology, medical geology, and paleosciences as well as my time spent teaching middle school science.
