About Me:

From a scientific perspective, I am interested in gaining a better understanding of how the human mind operates and learns. From a social perspective I want to use this understanding to promote a more equitable education system and an overall scientific and rational way of thinking in society - awareness and education being the slow but steady path towards greater social justice without instability.

 

Interesting tidbit: I have an entry on the Internet Movie Database!  Visit my IMDB page Unfortunately I cannot upload a picture: that costs money.

 

Research Interests:

Broadly speaking I am interested in modeling learning and reasoning processes. In particular, I am attracted to fine-grained analysis of video data both from a micro-genetic learning analysis methodology (drawing on knowledge in pieces) as well as interaction analysis methodology. I have been working on how learners' emotions are coupled with their conceptual and epistemological reasoning. I am also interested in working towards dynamics models of the categorizations (ontological) underlying students' reasoning in physics. Lately, I have been rather interested in engineering design thinking, how engineering students come to understand and practice design.
