Kelly J. Barry, PhD
Biological Sciences and
Office of Science and Mathematics Education
My research interests lie in two general area; Biology education and plant tissue culture as a teaching and research tool.
In the area of Biology education, I am interested in developing and assessing curriculum predominantly for the secondary level. Specific areas of interest are environmental education, biotechnology, and developing plant tissue culture as a teaching platform.
Beyond tissue culture as a teaching platform, I am also utilizing tissue culture as a research tool. Tissue culture techniques generate quantities of plant material suitable for molecular as well as micropropagation of regional endangered plants.
I am currently teaching: Sci241, Foundations of Science
CI352B, Biology student teaching.
