I received my Ph.D. in Learning Sciences from Arizona State University. I was mentored by Dr. Michelene ChiDr. Brian Nelson, and Dr. Teresa Foulger


My work lies at the intersection of the learning sciences, educational technology, and teacher education. More specifically, my research focuses on advancing the design of instructional content and learning environments to facilitate complex scientific reasoning, making computational thinking and technological tools accessible to learners from diverse backgrounds across formal and informal learning contexts.
