Research and Teaching Interests:

My research involves how people learn with technology, primarily focused on how we capture and model knowledge and experience using digital technologies. As a generalist in the learning sciences, my work is interdisciplinary, often where the boundaries of traditional domains converge. In my grant-funded research, I explore STEM learning in formal and informal contexts, supported by a range of interventions, from game- and simulation-based learning to cognitive apprenticeship to virtual reality environments.
