Research

research overview

  • Dr. Shi is an immunologist and an expert in education research . Her education research has been focused on how to improve and assess student learning. She has developed and implemented a co-seminar course to accompany a large introduction to cellular and molecular biology course. One of her publications 'A Diagnostic Assessment for Introductory Molecular and Cell Biology' in CBE- Life Sciences Education (2010) was cited by many pear-reviewed articles in PubMed Central Archive, and many educators around the world have requested to use this assessment in their classrooms. In 2017, she and her co-authors published a paper addressing ways to change student common misconceptions (JMBE). More recently, she started to collaborate with science education faculty on projects that involve in identification of the characteristics that pre-medical students have and the effects of accessing various resources on their career path.
