As the YouTube video embedded below shows, I approach work as a highly efficient, designerly, detail-oriented, multifaceted researcher/practitioner who is a team player and communicates effectively in both oral and written forms.
My professional positions demonstrate experience in complex project/program management, advisement/mentoring, teaching and learning, curriculum revision, systems design, grant writing, and professional development facilitation.
I live at the intersection of chemistry, statistics, and learning sciences. My STEM education research blends practitioner and researcher roles and focuses on ethics in assessment, critical quantitative methodologies, and assessment and evaluation, specifically ungrading. My quantitative skills include data cleaning, multiple and multivariate statistical analysis, and data communication and visualization. I can program in R, Matlab, and a little bit in Python. I also use MS Excel, Numbers, and Google Sheets extensively in data cleaning and data visualization. My qualitative skills include designing and conducting interviews and focus groups. I have coded interview transcripts, narratives, and artifacts using in vivo, thematic, VAB (values, attitudes, beliefs), holistic, narrative, hypothesis and grounded theory coding techniques. I have used case study (including multiple case study) analysis, narrative analysis, grounded theory, evaluative research and design-based research.
