Hi! I am a 4th year Ph.D. student in the Human Computer Interaction Institute at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU). My advisor is Dr. Vincent Aleven. I am also an associate of the PIER program at CMU, and part of the Pittsburgh Science of Learning Center.

My research consists of two main lines: 1) designing and developing online tools to foster students' Self-Regulated Learning; and 2) conducting classroom experiments to empirically evaluate the effectiveness of these new technologies. Recently, I have become interested in studying the learning effectiveness of educational games, as well as how to integrate gamification features with Intelligent Tutoring Systems.

I draw on interdisciplinary skills and techniques throughout my research, including user-centered design, classroom experimentation, cognitive science, learning sciences and educational data mining.
