Research Interests

Research interests lie in two disciplines. One interest is in developing undergraduate research experiences and projects in neural plasticity, utilizing behavioral studies in the human oculomotor (eye movement) system, including modeling of that system. Additional interests included investigation in memory-processing, in particular as it relates to repetitive head injury. A second interest is in physics education and the impact of various teaching and learning techniques and outcomes. Further, I have an interest in how introducing physics in the elementary school classroom impacts school-aged children's interest in science. Finally, I am also currently investigating the impact of an academic recognition program on Division III athletes.
