Chandralekha Singh

Distinguished Professor of Physics, University of Pittsburgh

One goal of my research is to identify sources of student difficulties in learning physics both at the introductory and advanced levels, and to design, implement, and assess curricula/pedagogies that may significantly reduce these difficulties. The objective is to enable students at all levels to develop critical thinking skills, and to become good problem solvers and independent learners. Another goal of my research is to make physics learning environments equitable and inclusive.
