I work on Reading for Understanding Across Grades 6 through 12: Evidence-based Argumentation for Disciplinary Learning (READI) as part of the literature design team.

Hobbies & Interests

I enjoy collecting LPs from the late 1980's and early 1990's alternative scene.

Why Learning Sciences?

I decided on Learning Sciences because it is interdisciplinary. I am interested in theory and research on learning from the perspectives of various disciplines.
