Spanish Speaker

Expertise: My research focuses primarily on theorizing the nature of short- and long-term interests in STEM disciplines, and designing learning environments that are truly engaging to students. This has led me to investigate learning and interest-based participation in settings as diverse as classrooms, after-school programs, and hobby practices (model rocketry and amateurs astronomy). Intersecting with this central research focus, my other research interests include the use and creation of technical representations and the way these mediate knowing and learning; the discourse and practices of engaged participation in STEM classrooms; and social justice issues in STEM education. This work has appeared in publications such as the Journal of the Learning Sciences, Cognition and Instruction, and the Journal of Mathematical Behavior.

Expertise: Interests include the broad areas of polymer science and engineering and chemical engineering. Current research involves various aspects of polymeric materials including polymer blends; membranes for separations, drug delivery, packaging, etc.; and polymer processing.  The blend research deals with the thermodynamics of polymer-polymer interactions (miscibility, phase diagrams, interfaces), reactive compatibilization of multiphase mixtures, rubber toughening, the control of phase morphology during processing by both chemical and physical means, and polymeric nanocomposites.  The research on diffusion in polymers involves investigation of structure-property relationships to design better membranes for separation processes and improved barrier materials plus an interest in theories and models for describing sorption and permeation of small molecule penetrants in polymers including the rubbery, glassy, semi-crystalline, and liquid crystalline states of these materials.  The research on nanocomposites involves devising chemical and processing strategies for exfoliating layered silicates in polymer matrices for improvement of performance using nanoscale reinforcement.  Synthesis, characterization, and performance of polymers are an integral part of the research in all these areas.
