Our research explores how students develop conceptual understanding in biological science. Our team includes postdoctoral researchers, graduate and undergraduate students representing a range of interests and expertise, including plant biology, ecology, cognitive science, evolution, and neuroscience. We apply the tools and methodologies we’ve learned from disciplinary science to ask and answer questions about how students learn biology. We are especially interested in that fuzzy intersection where the lines between research in biology and the learning sciences become blurred!
