University of Michigan / UC Irvine
Ph.D. Candidate, ABD & Visiting Scholar
Long Beach, CA
I am an ABD in Education and Psychology at the University of Michigan, and research the design, efficacy, and motivational implications of learning analytics applications. Specifically, I am interested in how representations of achievement influence students' academic motivation and self-regulated learning strategies. My dissertation study focuses on capturing and measuring students' sense-making processes when exposed to potential visualizations of their academic information.

Currently, I am a visiting scholar at the University of California, Irvine's School of Education, where I am an active member of Mark Warschauer’s Digital Learning Lab, am involved with Jacquelynne Eccles’s Gender & Achievement Research Program, and serve as a resource for students interested in using hierarchical linear modeling techniques in their research.
