What's with the 3D cat? 

My logo combines my love for my little gray cat Delilah and my research interest in three-dimensional assessments. While you don't quite need 3D glasses to identify the three dimensions I study (scientific practices, biology core ideas, and interdisciplinary crosscutting concepts), I think the imagery is just too fun to pass up! Email me with your mailing address and I'd be happy to send you a custom sticker featuring  the 3D cat!
