I'm originally from Bay City, Michigan and did my undergraduate degree in movement science at the University of Michigan. My research focus is currently on self-regulated learning, how students use online lectures and how instructors can use learning analytics. I'm also invested in flipped and blended classroom development. Outside of work/school I enjoy powerlifting, herping (aka finding reptiles and amphibians out in the woods) and hanging out with my two cats, Midna and Meatloaf.

I'm originally from Kansas City, MO. (Go Chiefs) and did my undergraduate degree in Organismal Biology and Educational Studies at Rockhurst University. Currently, I am researching the use of formative assessments in undergraduate A&P courses through the use of qualitative inquiry. I also serve as the Graduate Assistant for the Scholarship of Teaching & Learning program at the Center for Innovative Teaching & Learning. Outside of school, I enjoy traveling, hanging out with friends, and drinking coffee!

My research interests are focused on understanding the college experiences and academic performance of undergraduate students with ADHD and specific learning disabilities in anatomy and other large introductory STEM courses. I am originally from Melbourne, Australia, and prior to attending IU I received my Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Melbourne. During my spare time, I enjoy practicing landscape photography, travelling, hiking and watching or playing cricket.

Entered Fall 2023

I am originally from Phoenix, Arizona and received my bachelor’s in biomedical science from Northern Arizona University. Throughout high school and college, I worked at elementary schools around AZ and spent time with children of all ages and abilities. My research interests are focused on the classroom design in elementary education and incorporating those ideas into higher ed. Outside of school, I enjoy listening to music and taking care of my plants.

My research interests currently center around development of metacognition and study skills for undergraduate STEM students interested in allied health care careers. In addition, I am interested in the integration of Anatomy and Physiology curricula and its impact on student metacognition and study skills. In my free time I enjoy running, basking in the outdoors, birding and copious amounts of hot java.
