Research

My research and writing focuses broadly on education and careers in the field of neuroscience. I’m interested in capitalizing on open access datasets as a course-based undergraduate research experience. We are developing scaffolds for such datasets that will enable students to ask their own questions of cutting edge data. I am interested in whether these approaches will create realistic, engaging laboratory experiences and ultimately invite diverse students into the field of neuroscience.
