Experience or expertise/projects of note:
I have a BA in political science from Colorado College. I have been working at BSCS Science Learning as a research associate since 2020 primarily with Dr. Donovan on the Humane Genetics projects. I also work on Place-Based Learning for Elementary Science at Scale (PeBLES2) which aims to create experiences that help students understand their worlds by connecting to local phenomena, communities, and cultures.
Reasons I’m excited about this project:
I have previously worked with Dr. Guy-Gaytán and Dr. Harris on another project that looks at localizing curriculum for teachers. I am excited to continue work that empowers students to learn.
