My CV

## 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:

Kuo, E., Hull, M.M., Gupta, A., and Elby, A. (2013) How student blend conceptual and formal mathematical reasoning in solving physics problems. Science Education, 97(1), 32-57.
