eLearning Institute (Penn State University, College of Arts and Architecture) 

  • Work as a Graduate assistant that researches digital and instructional technologies in the arts and design for selected research initiatives.

  • Current project: Virtual Design Studios.


January 2015 – May 2018

Augmented and Mobile Learning Research Group

  • Part of a researcher team at Penn State University looking at pedagogies and designs to support learning with mobile computers. Perspective combines theories from informal learning, place-based learning, and technologically enhanced learning to create learner-centered environments deployed on mobile computers.

  • Current project: Tree Investigators, which supports children and families to learn science together in out-of-school time.
