RESEARCH & PUBLICATIONS


My research focuses on the integration of online technologies for teaching and learning. More specifically, it examines how teaching and learning theory combined with study systems developed with sound empirical research can improve learning in STEM fields. In addition, I explore and research the role of implementing online, blended, and flipped models in enhancing instruction and learning in Engineering programs. My work bridges quantitative and qualitative methods.
