Abraham Lab

Our research interests span plant ecology, K-16 biology education, agroecology, and community science. If you are interested in joining the lab, please click here.


I strive to scaffold authentic science experiences in each of my courses and work to support an accessible and inclusive learning environment for all learners.


Most of my research activities are in biology education, primarily centered on computer-based
instruction/assessment in higher education.


My outreach, volunteer, and other service activities fall across four major areas: Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion; Student Success; Faculty Support; and Scholarly Engagement.


I provide consulting services in the areas of STEM educational research, science curriculum, and educational instructional and assessment technology.

Children’s Books

My first book, A Mouse in my House!, was self-published in 2020 (20 years after I began it!). I have advised on other children’s books, and am nearing completion of my next one.
