Biography

I want to build educational technologies that are as compelling and engaging as the very best social media apps, video games or movies. Like our most dedicated educators, I would like our technology to captivate learners, young and old, and help cultivate attitudes towards learning and growth that are compatible with the demands of the modern world. In pursuit of these goals, I conduct research on the design, use, and impacts of intelligent technologies for learning and behavior change. This work involves blending techniques from the entertainment industry (that foster engagement) with those from artificial intelligence and intelligent tutoring systems (that promote learning), as well as running studies to better understand whether and how the resulting learning experiences impact learners.
