K-12 STEM Education and Research Trainee Development:

My research and academic efforts in the areas of K-12 teacher professional development are supported by a NIGMS Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA). Through this award we have engaged research trainees in activities with K-12 teachers in order to foster their communication and teaching skills. Additionally, our team works to develop novel programs through the Teacher Enrichment Initiatives (TEI) that foster STEM Teacher professional development. I have also published a book that addresses the steps that science trainees should take to prepare for success in their career of choice. Further, I have worked with a multidisciplinary team of graduate trainees to showcase the data collected from a city-wide science outreach effort, Science Fiesta. Collectively these efforts showcase the importance of science communication, outreach, and engagement for the professional development of science trainees and teachers.
