About Me

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science and (by courtesy) in the School of Education and the Department of Information Science at the University of Colorado Boulder.

I lead the Education R&D team in Appleā€™s AI/ML organization.

I received my PhD in the Learning Sciences from Northwestern University, and was a postdoctoral fellow in the Games+Learning+Society group at the Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. I was an Independent Studies major at the University of California, San Diego, where I was a member of the Distributed Cognition and Human-Computer Interaction lab.

Laboratory for Playful Computation

We study how designing and building computational systems can empower young people to learn through pursuing personal interests. To do so, we create new technologies for learning and investigate how people, including students and teachers, use them to learn together.
