While my graduate research, dissertation and early publications focused on human capital accumlation and the relationship between different levels of education and earned wages, my current role as teaching faculty and Director of a Master's program shifted my focus to understanding and improving the learning experiences and outcomes of our students.  Consequently, my current research and and work investigates how innovative pedagogies like service-learning influence student learning. 

As a JHU School of Education Doctoral student, I am investigating low faculty participation in innovative teaching and service-learning by exploring their perceptions, identified barriers and incentives that influence their decision making.  Furthermore, I am working with a colleague at the School of Medicine on enhancing the learning experiences of students across the three health professional schools through classes that integrate tenets of interprofessional education.
