Christina L Baze, Ph.D., expected 2021 (Committee Member)
I am interested in engineering and science education. Specifically, my research interests include student engagement in the practices of science (especially argumentation and modeling) and student epistemic agency. I use qualitative and mixed-methods research to answer questions about the ways students talk about science and engineering, and their place in science and engineering.
