My research interests focus on engineering education and specifically what interventions improve learning and understanding. Areas I am currently working on are creating classroom demonstrations to illustrate fundamental principles in thermodynamics (mechanical equivalent of heat), fluid mechanics (pressure and velocity in pulsatile flow in an artificial circulatory system), and physiologic measurements (cardiac output using thermal dilution).
