Brief Bio:
Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from the University of Georgia in 2012. He joined Dr. Rushton’s research team in the Spring of 2013. As a postdoctoral researcher, Justin works with an interdisciplinary team to research the relationships between teacher demographics and attrition from the profession. He also facilitates professional development opportunities for high school chemistry and physics teachers in online and face-to-face induction networks. His research into science teacher induction includes modeling leadership as a strategy for retaining teachers. Additional areas of interest are social network analysis and understanding professional identity in out-of-field teacher populations.
