About Amber

Amber is a first-year Ph.D. student in the STEM Curriculum and Instruction group, which is a fancy way of saying she’s planning on spending the rest of her life making chemistry easier to learn. A few false starts, six changes of major, time on the research bench, and several years in the classroom lend Amber a wealth of experience to bring to her students. When not in the classroom as an instructor or as a student, Amber enjoys spending time crafting, camping, canoeing, and engaging in acts of general nerdery.
