I started at Virginia Tech in 2013, after earning my PhD in Mathematics Education from Portland State University. My research focuses on the pedagogical practices of mathematicians, with the goal of better understanding and supporting high quality, ambitious teaching in undergraduate mathematics classrooms.

My research and professional interests have since taken a turn towards issues of inclusion and diveristy – both in the mathematics classroom and in the sciences more broadly. In 2020 I began a new position, as the College of Science Director of Inclusion and Diversity.
