Integrating Research and Teaching

Zolman doesn’t compartmentalize her research and teaching. With her CAREER Grant, for example, she is designing a lab component to an existing course in order to engage students in her current research. This integrative method does more than just educate her students: “I think that my research, and just some of the techniques we use, helps me drive what we do in class, but then the same thing is true in reverse,” she says.
