Chicago, IL

Alex Carstensen is a doctoral student in the Educational Psychology department at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). Before pursuing his doctorate, he was a researcher in a pharmacology lab at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. After leaving the lab, he spent three and half years teaching high school science in Chicago Public Schools. Alex’s research interests center on how students and teachers learn science through conceptual change models. Additionally, his experiences in the classroom have prompted an interest in working with urban students and ELs. He is also a basketball fanatic who enjoys both playing and following the sport.
