I am an associate professor at Utah State University. My research focuses on factors influencing current reform in science education. This is supported by investigating science teacher professional development, scientific inquiry/modeling instructional practices and science/technology integration. I am the principal investigator for a National Science Foundation project focused on integrating technology into science instruction and a state-level Mathematics Science Partnership professional development project partnering science teachers and scientists in curriculum development. I have published in International Journal of Science Education, Journal of Science Teacher Education, and Journal of Science Education and Technology, among others.
