About Me:


I graduated in 2007 from Brandeis University with a degrees in Math and Physics, and a minor in secondary education.  After graduation I taught high school physics for a year in Massachusetts.  I'm currently a fifth year graduate student in physics with the Physics Education Research Group at Maryland.  I work mostly with Andy Elby and Ayush Gupta.



What I'm Working On:


  • How students blend conceptual reasoning with mathematical equations in physics.
  • The dynamics of students' reasoning and how those dynamics are connected to students' epistemological stances. 
  • How disciplinary differences in purpose and context of approximations can lead to differences in how students approach approximation problems in math and physics.    


The Latest Things:
