I am an Associate Professor of science education emphasizing action research regarding students'/citizens' personal and social actions to address harms to individuals, societies and environments that have been linked to fields of science and technology (and engineering & mathematics). Like Naomi Klein's analysis of climate change in This Changes Everything, many such harms appear linked to neoliberal capitalism. I am working, largely through my CASE action research project, to oppose this ideology and develop educational alternatives for a better world.

About the above, also see: Here.
See our open journal, JASTE, for activism to address sociopolitical problems.
Note: Our edited STEPWISE book is coming out soon, and is summarized here.
