About Me

Allison was a lecturer in the SFSU College of Science and Engineering and the SEPAL Coordinator. She divided her energy between teaching science education coursework and professional development trainings, coordinating collaborative partnerships between SFSU scientific trainees and Bay Area K-12 teachers, and collecting and analyzing data on the impact these experiences have had on scientific trainees.
