Doctoral Student in Education

I am a third year graduate student in Educational Psychology with an interest in the cognitive science of teaching and learning within the STEM fields. My work involves three lines of research. My primary interest is in investigating the cognitive factors that facilitate or hinder student learning in introductory undergraduate STEM courses. I am studying how to use technology to individualize interventions aimed at improving student performance. My second line of research involves investigating ways in which embodied experience interacts with formal learning in the classroom and how body-based interventions might be applied in STEM classrooms. Finally, I am interested in the types of interventions commonly used in undergraduate STEM courses alter a person’s views on the nature of science.
