I am also involved in several grant funded projects including serving as the Outreach Director for the Quarked! Adventures in the Subatomic Universe project, a collaborative physics education program, and was the Principal Investigator for the Understanding the Tree of Life project.

I hold a bachelor of arts degree with honours in physical anthropology from the University of Winnipeg, a master of science in vertebrate paleontology from the [University of Alberta, and a doctorate in education from the University of Kansas.

I am a Canadian, and before moving to the United States worked in Ghana as the sole science teacher at a rural secondary school near Navrongo in Ghana (West Africa) and in science education in the United Kingdom.
