About Me

I am a founding member of the I2LSE (Integrated Introductory Life-Science Education) group in UMass Amherst that has been working on promoting transdisciplinary thinking across the introductory life-sciences curriculum.

Recently, I have been interested in the effective uses of virtual reality and artificial intelligence in STEM teaching and the best way to harness and implementation of these technologies to enhance STEM pedagogy.
