I am passionate about helping the STEM community of educators recognize the increasingly powerful way 3D printing and digital design is providing a new generation of tools for active learning in the classroom, laboratory, and field. In 2014, I founded the Wabash College 3D Printing and Fabrication Center (3D-PFC), one of the first fabrication resources for developing and producing low-cost analytical instrumentation for undergraduate STEM teaching and learning. My research primarily focuses on the development of customizable, user friendly analytical instruments (colorimeters, fluorimeters, etc.) with excellent performance for low costs. More recent work involves adapting low-cost and user-friendly 3D printed analytical instruments for detection of environmentally significant chemical species.
