Before joining EDC, my doctoral research identified how online communication tools and scaffolds can support the development of argumentation and inquiry skills among middle-school students.
In all of these contexts, as well as in my other projects at CCT, I use my extensive knowledge of developmental psychology, program evaluation, and instructional design. I have an Ed.D. in Educational Technology from Teachers College, Columbia University, as well as an M.A. from New York University and a B.A. from the University of Pennsylvania.
