Biography

Adam Carberry, Ph.D. is an Associate Professor in The Polytechnic School within Arizona State University’s Fulton Schools of Engineering. He earned a B.S. in Materials Science Engineering from Alfred University, and received his M.S. and Ph.D., both from Tufts University, in Chemistry and Engineering Education, respectively. He currently teaches use-inspired design courses, primarly the first semester, second-year course EGR 201, utilizing a project-based approach. His research involving collaborations across multiple institutions investigates the impact student characteristics (self-efficacy, epistemological beliefs, motivation, and associated value) and pedagogical approaches (standards-based grading, project-based learning, service learning, and reflection) can have on learning in Engineering Education. He is also currently collaborating with ASU colleagues to better understand faculty pedagogigcal risk-taking and the broad construct of entreprneruial mindset.

Prior to coming to ASU, he briefly worked at Sikorsky Aircraft before joining the Tufts’ Center for Engineering Education and Outreach. There he managed of the Student Teacher Outreach Mentorship Program (STOMP) where he received the Tufts University Presidential Award for Citizenship and Public Service. He has faciliated and lead LEGO-based outreach opportunities for K-12 teachers, students, and FLL coaches since 2005 all around the world; most recently he has participated in the ASU Barrett Summer Scholars program receiving the Outstanding Service Award in 2015 and 2016. He has served in many volunteer roles through the American Society for Engineering Education and currently sits on the Research in Engineering Education Network (REEN) governing board.
