I am interested in looking at college student values development in relation to sustainability. I am interested in researching to what extent course content and experiences across departments, and other experiences students participate in while on campus, contribute to their values in the short term (by the time they graduate) and more longitudinally (as alumni several years after graduation).
I am interested in working with other faculty and students to design sustainability initiatives and research projects for the children and families at the Child Development Center. The CDC is a rich resource to tap into to extend academic opportunities for our students across departments. As part of an interdisciplinary team at this site, I would be particularly interested in working to design meaningful projects for young children and then measuring their impact on young children, their families, and teachers.
