About Me

I am an Associate Professor of moth ecology, evolution education, and science education at Michigan State University. In my lab, we engage in a broad range of research projects, from moth assemblage dynamics and moth-mediated pollinator, to advances in evolution education from middle school through to higher ed.

I am an innovative and evidence-based educator, focusing my efforts on peer-learning, authentic scientific inquiry, and integrative approach to learning.
