I am an incoming Assistant Professor of STEM Education at the University of Tennesee, Knoxville (Fall ‘18). I am completing my Ph.D. in Educational Psychology and Educational Technology from Michigan State University. I previously taught biology, chemistry, and earth science at a public high school in North Carolina.
My research focuses on support and documenting student engagement in activities focused around work with data. I also explore how new data sources and methods (such as log-trace data and network analysis) can be used as part of educational research. I’m passionate about developing activities and tools designed to make it easier for learners to use data to ask and answer questions that are important to them. You can see links to and resources for publications and other products on my Publications page.
In addition to topics related to engaging in data practices in STEM. I teach courses broadly in the areas of educational psychology (and the learning sciences), educational technology, research methodology, and teacher education. I am committed to open science; accordingly, all of the content on this website and its source code can be viewed and re-purposed.
