I am currently a Postdoc Fellow at the University of California Irvine in the School of Education. I received my PhD from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign in the Digital Environment for Learning, Teaching, and Agency program. My research is situated at the intersection of human-computer interaction, learning sciences, and design. I use participatory methods to design digital and non-digital learning environments that support collaborative discourse and learning. My approach to research underscores the importance of exploring how researchers and stakeholders design educational tools and how those they interact in learning environments to empower teachers and support students’ learning.
