I will be exploring the relationships among mental health, science education, and the brain by pursuing long standing interests of my own in the mental health area and connecting them to contemporary thinking about the brain and about education. As part of my research I will be helping to prepare and teach materials on science education and the brain to K12 teachers. I expect these interactions will in turn help me to develop new ways to think about the intersections of research on the brain, education, and mental health.
