I am a PhD candidate at the University of California, Irvine and will earn my PhD in Learning, Cognition and Development in the spring of 2014. My work focuses on the cognitive skills and motivations that influence learning, especially in mathematics and within digital environments.
My work is informed by my
background in education and educational technology (BS in Elementary
Education with a concentration in computers from Florida International
University), cognitive psychology (coursework and research at University
of Texas, Austin) and law (JD from Boston University school of law).
