I have two promary lines of research – one is understanding how motivation affects students’ academic performance and educational choices and the other focuses on designing and testing online and in-class activities that aim to promote motivation.
I have worked as a lecturer, professor, and teaching assistant at the high school, college, and graduate school levels. I have taught and assisted many courses including: Motivation in Education, Human Development in Education, Adolescent Development, Educational Psychology, and Research Methods. I have also mentored more than twenty-five students conducting independent research projects related to motivation.
