Dr. Montfort conducts research on the system of engineering education and the processes of learning and thinking in the context of engineering. Primarily utilizing qualitative, interpretive and phenomenological methods, recent projects focus on: conceptual change and understanding of statics, solid and fluid mechanics, and environmental chemistry; epistemic practices and the personal epistemologies of practicing engineers, students and faculty; social justice, power and discrimination in engineering education.
