Graduate advisor:   Dr. Michael Tissenbaum, Curriculum & Instruction


My academic interests, most broadly, center around the construction and pedagogy of how students inhabit physical, virtual, and linguistic spaces, and how we can better shape these “worlds” to improve students’ learning experiences. On the technological side, I’m interested in the development of games and digital technologies for learning environments, and my background is in computer science, as well as linguistic anthropology.
