Princeton Science and Engineering Education Initiative


This university-wide initiative aims to prepare all Princeton students, irrespective of their majors, to become scientifically and technologically literate citizens and decision-makers. Launched by the faculty on the Council on Science and Technology (CST), currently chaired by Naomi Leonard, the initiative revises the Science and Technology (ST) distribution requirements, introduces new courses emphasizing the role of science in society, and focuses on assessing and raising the learning outcomes across ST courses through applying the science of learning to the learning of science.  For more information on the initiative and the activities of the CST, please see the CST website.

My passion for science education began in grade school. I pursued physics in college and theoretical cosmology for my PhD. Before coming to Princeton in mid-2011, I served as Assistant Professor of Physics at West Chester University.
