Ash Heim

Cornell University
Postdoctoral Researcher
Ithaca, NY
In 2016, I began my Ph.D. in Biological Education at the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley, CO, where I studied learner-centeredness in biology classrooms to explore how perceptions of instructors, students, and expert observers align, as well as free-choice learning of undergraduates in informal learning settings like zoos to better understand how such visits influence students’ motivation, self-regulation, academic performance, and goal-setting in biology. After graduating with my Ph.D. in May 2020, I moved cross-country to Ithaca, NY, and am currently a postdoctoral researcher at Cornell University (Ecology & Evolutionary Biology) working with Michelle Smith and Natasha Holmes. My primary research focuses on developing an assessment to gauge undergraduates' critical thinking skills in ecology (i.e., the Eco-BLIC), but I am interested in many other DBER topics--so please feel free to reach out if you would like to collaborate or have any questions!
