Research Summary

Understanding what drives students to learn is critical for helping them reach their academic potential. My research lies at the intersection of educational, developmental, and social psychology and explores how to understand and improve students' motivation during middle school, high school, and college. I focus in particular on math and science learning.

I have two primary lines of research. One examines how students' motivation (their beliefs, values, goals, and energy directed towards or away from learning) affects their learning behavior, engagement, and academic achievement. The other examines how to develop and test interventions that promote motivation in order to help students learn more effectively.
