My scholarly interests lie in both teaching and traditional bench research.  As an instructor, I have experimented with many teaching techniques ranging from traditional PowerPoint lecture to case studies and small group work.  I try to incorporate some form of active learning in all of my courses, with an emphasis on information gathering, data analysis, application of learned information to practical situations, and oral and written forms of communication.  I work to find meaningful ways to assess the student learning experience, which often involves the development of new assessment instruments. 

In the research lab, I study the molecular basis of organ formation using the model organism, Caenorhabditis elegans. To learn more about work in the Miskowski lab, please click on the link below.
