Areas of Expertise and Interest
The majority of my published research involved the DØ Collaboration (a 700+ member experimental particle physics experiment at Fermilab) which took place fromJune 1989 to 2010. A highlight of my participation included the discovery of the top quark, a fundamental particle of nature.
My current research centers on understanding best practices for teaching critical thinking and methodologies of science, and how to best assess student learning outcomes in these areas.
