Nathaniel Grove

I am an assistant professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of North Carolina Wilmington. I currently teach general chemistry and the senior seminar course in the department. In general, our research group is focused on expanding our understanding of how theories of learning and cognitive development can be applied to the unique learning environments encountered in chemistry. Specifically, we are currently pursuing projects that seek to better understand: factors that influence meaningful/rote learning in chemistry; factors that influence epistemological development in chemistry; the development of representational competence in chemistry; and, the use of technology in teaching chemistry.
