About

Peggy's passion lies at the intersection of solid mechanics and engineering education. Her research focuses on the role of a new paradigm in teaching introductory, fundamental engineering mechanics classes, particularly statics, dynamics, and mechanics of materials that combines student-centered learning and online learning in large classes.

Peggy has taught statics, mechanics of materials, and aircraft performance and design for 13 years at Iowa State University before she joined the DEL team at Stanford.  At Iowa State University she had won numerous teaching awards and taught more than 5,000 students.
