Current Research

Dr. Hammond’s research interests include K-12 and undergraduate biology education; specifically, student science identity formation, global climate change education, and metacognitive strategies in biology pedagogy. Recently, Dr. Hammond has begun research on the implementation and utility of feminist pedagogy in undergraduate science classes.
