Physics Education Research is concerned, in part, with how physicists and physics students organize and communicate their knowledge of physics. I am particularly interested in how upper level students bring their understanding of mathematics into the physics classroom, and how it can be appropriately modeled using large-scale, stable knowledge ("conceptions"), small-scale, flexible knowledge ("pieces" or "resources") or a combination of the two.
