Dr. Allain's research interests are in the field of Physics Education Research(PER). The primary goal of PER is to explore how students understand physics. This typically leads to the development of new curriculum and instructional techniques. Currently, Dr. Allain is interested in physics for elementary teachers, computational methods in introductory physics and student understanding of the nature of science.

 

Here is an example of one of Dr. Allain's favorite demonstrations.
