My research interests include machine learning, cognitive modeling, and complex adaptive systems. In particular, I am interested in how advances in machine learning can benefit and inform current educational practices in PreK-12 and post-secondary education. Although learning and effective instruction have been active areas of study for thousands of years, the moment of learning and the factors that portend or inhibit it are still relatively mysterious. I am investigating how we can collect and leverage educational data to increase our efficacy as educators.
I am a PhD candidate and a GK-12 Fellow in the department of Computer Science and the Institute of Cognitive Science at the University of Colorado, Boulder. I have a Master of Arts in Mathematics Education from the University of Colorado and a Bachelor of Arts and Sciences from St. John’s College. Before returning to the student side of academia, I was a full-time teacher for twelve years. I have taught all levels from preschool to college and have loved something different about each one.
