Research Interests

I am currently working on a National Science Foundation MSP-Start Program Grant, The Power of Physical Science (POPS) (with K. Fletcher, A. Sheldon, and D. Farthing); we are in the process of preparing a follow up to this grant through the NSF. These grants are designed to get girls interested in pursuing the physical sciences as college majors and career choices.
