Favorite things to do in Milwaukee:

Milwaukee has a great theater scene, and lots of great places to hangout with friends. It is also fun to go hiking with your dog in any of the pet approved areas.

Research Goals:

To help create a system that will benefit students and teachers in the classroom, though learning about how students approach problem solving and learning in chemistry.
