General / Analytical
My primary research interest is pedagogical research, where my ultimate goal is to discover the best ways to advance current teaching methodologies in science courses in order to better accommodate students with learning disabilities. In addition, I would also like to design a teaching platform to be used by either instructors or tutors when working with students who have difficulties in processing materials taught in the typical classroom setting.
