I am a student in the Masters of Educational Technology and Applied Learning Science (METALS) program at Carnegie Mellon University. I am interested in developing systems that enable educators to analyze their students’ learning and improve their teaching methods.
I previously worked as the lab manager for the Fedorenko Lab at MIT. The goal of their research is to understand the cognitive and neural mechanisms that allow us to produce and comprehend language. In addition to being involved in experiment design, subject recruitment, and data analysis, I acted as a liaison between our lab and collaborators from around the world. I also maintained the lab website, handled the subject database, and trained new members on our extensive code base.
I was part of the first class to graduate from the University of Michigan with a B.S. in Cognitive Science. As of 8/26/2017, I am still on the front page of the department website (click the arrows on the picture slideshow thingie until you see my beautiful face with the other 5 grads). I also have a black belt in taekwondo, enjoy playing guitar (especially jamming out to this gem and, more recently, this one), cook vegetarian food, and try to not break my bones snowboarding every year.
If you are interested in my work or just want to say hi, feel free to contact me.
