People

Emily is a forest ecologist at heart who is also curious about how students learn to reason about scientific ideas. She received a Master’s degree in Forest Science from Oregon State University and a Ph.D. in Forestry from Michigan State University (MSU). Emily transitioned to science education research as a postdoc at MSU, working with Dr. Andy Anderson (learning progression research) and Dr. Vashti Sawtelle (physics education research), but she still compulsively identifies trees every time she is out walking.
