Research Interests
My research focuses on enhancing scientific understanding to promote scientific literacy for the 21st Century knowledge and life skills among middle and high school students, and pre-service science teachers. Particularly I explore how students' conceptual understanding and application of scientific knowledge to real world problems can be enhanced using contemporary science teaching and learning contexts which are engineering design, scientific inquiry, and computer simulation modeling technologies.
