Note: It is not possible for me to know how many of my students are from disadvantaged socioeconomic backgrounds. Likewise, I can only estimate, based on observation, how many of my students are members of ethnic groups that are underrepresented in science.


Professional Development

 I currently hold a non-tenure track position at UW-Madison as a Faculty Associate. I am happy with this position and feel that it allows me to contribute in significant and positive ways. However, I am considering a move to the tenure track in the future, at UW or elsewhere, to broaden the impact I can have. For this to be an option, I need to establish a research program, not just reflective practice, in teaching and learning. I see the BSP Research Residency Program as a first step toward this goal.
