I first authored an academic paper with Katerina Schenke called Can Flipping the Class Work? Evidence from Undergraduate Chemistry.
Kat and I looked at whether college students taking a flipped format undergraduate chemistry class do better (or worse) in the next chemistry class. I've authored this paper with Tutrang Nguyen and Dr. Mark Warschauer, we've submitted this to an academic research journal for publishing. It just got accepted for publishing in the International Journal of Teaching and Learning in Higher Ed.
I also first authored an exploratory psychology study called Smiling & Student Evaluations: Do Professors Who Smile Receive Higher Course Evaluations?
I first authored an exploratory study with Meg Ringel, Eric Chen, Thom Stamper, Dr. Sarah Pressman, and Dr. Pete Ditto. We're looking at the associations of facial expressions of professors and their formal student evaluations. We've presented a poster of this project at:
