  • I am nationally recognized as STEM (science, engineering, technology, and math) education expert, as represented through my peer-reviewed journal publications and interviews by national periodicals such as The Nerd Scholar and US News & World Report. As a former industrial physicist with a PhD and 20 years of academic experience at The University of Akron, I am a uniquely qualified STEM education expert and researcher. Since 2011, I have served in the role of UA’s STEM liaison to the Akron Public Schools’(APS) STEM MS and STEM HS with duties that include developing innovative secondary school curriculum, providing in-service teachers professional development, facilitating problem-based learning experiences, and producing novel STEM education and career experiences at the university for middle and high school students.

  • I have demonstrated leadership in industry, in academia, and within professional societies including ISSSS and the Ohio Section of the American Association of Physics Teachers (OSAAPT). As a member of the STEM Executive Committee (a partnership among UA, APS, the City of Akron, Akron Greater Chamber / Akron Tomorrow, and Invent Now), I share my expertise in STEM education and experiences as liaison as well as provide input on the development of marketable STEM and PBL programming and training experiences.
