My research is primarily concerned with the cognitive processes during physics learning and problem-solving using methods from cognitive science, educational psychology as well as physics education. My other research interests include how to use retrieval practice to improve students’ problem-solving skills in physics and how students correct themselves in introductory physics problem solving.
