Currently Teaching

Not currently teaching any courses.

Research Interests

My background is in mycology and plant biology, particularly plant-fungal interactions such as mycorrhizas and endophytes. During my PhD and subsequent postdoctoral work, I was fortunate to have several teaching opportunities, which convinced me to seek a faculty position focusing on teaching and learning, and led me to the Biological Sciences department at the University of Calgary.  Currently, my research interests focus on the influence of different assessment approaches and cooperative learning approaches (such as team-based learning) on student learning and engagement.
