My earlier research focused on parent-child relations and understanding the cognitive underpinnings of maladaptive parenting. My more recent research and professional activities focus on identifying elements of effective pedagogy in large and small classes and understanding ways faculty can promote a sense of belongingness in students. My driving belief is that learning is a lifelong process that unites us all!
