Kelsey Funkhouser defends thesis proposal

Fourth year astrophysics graduate student Kelsey Funkhouser has successfully defended her thesis proposal.

Kelsey is completing her first full year as a PERL graduate student after switching from astrophysics research last year. Her research will look into how students develop their physics identity in laboratory courses, which emphasize science practices. Kelsey's research will blend the theoretical lenses of identity and communities of practice and will make use of quantitative analysis as she works to develop a valid and reliable survey for this purpose. Kelsey is co-advised by Profs. Vashti Sawtelle and Danny Caballero. Her thesis committee also includes Profs. Ed Brown, Angela Calabrese-Barton, Megan Donahue, and Phil Duxbury.
