I am interested in implementing proven methods that maximize student achievement and retention of students —especially of minorities—in chemistry.  I want to address issues that will give some insight into how student’s attitudes translate into academic outcomes of minorities, which can transform into real solutions to address their low retention rates in STEM majors.  In addition to developing models and teaching strategies that increase student learning outcomes, I would like to study the effects on such outcomes of specific approaches such as task-centered and peer-interactive instruction, the use of innovative technologies in the classroom, and models that teach student learning strategies.
