I'm a postdoctoral fellow in the Human-Computer Interaction Institute at Carnegie Mellon University working with Ken Koedinger. I study how learning takes place and is affected by different contextual factors such as the type of material being studied. I'm interested in how we can use this knowledge to create better learning tools to foster learning in applied settings.
