Bio

I love passing on my enthusiasm for science to my students through teaching, research, and service learning.

Research Interests

1. Health Disparities in Immigrant and Refugee Communities. My research focuses on the learning gains that students improve as a result of performing this novel, authentic research project. 2. The Impact of Service Learning on Health Literacy. I study how the ability to process and understand information on health disparities is improved by student involvement in a service learning project outside of the classroom. 3. Impact of real-world experiences on student learning. These range from student assessment of their own Genetic information to development of case studies based on real-life situations.
