Professional Interests

Professional Interests

My research interests in the History and Philosophy of Science center on historical conceptions of nature and corresponding questions of scientific inquiry and progress. I am also interested in the ethical issues surrounding the idea of biomedical enhancement. Related to the scholarship of teaching & learning, my primary interests are in game-based pedagogy, the use of active learning methods to facilitate soft skill development, and incorporating adaptive learning technologies to enhance critical thinking and problem solving skills.
