Research Summary/Interests

My research interest is within the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning. I am interested in researching student success, and the ways students face and overcome challenges. I am especially interested in the learning and growth that happens at periods of transition for students, as they transition from undergraduate to graduate level course work, from didactic to experiential education, and from student to practitioner.
