I graduated from the University of Wisconsin in 1999, with a Ph.D. in Educational Psychology, with an emphasis in Cognitive Psychology applied to Education. I have prior degrees in Computer Science (M.S. and B.S.) and Mathematics (B.S.). This combined background has led me to the study of educational technology.
In my research, I seek to understand the pedagogical affordances (and constraints) of newer technologies for learning, specifically in the context of the professional development of teachers, and in the design of technology-rich and innovated learning environments for adults and children.
