I explore the construction of computational tools that support creativity. Additionally, I use artificial intelligence and machine learning techniques to construct models of how humans perform open-ended tasks.
In my current research I am studying human learning, problem solving, and design in the context of intelligent tutoring systems and educational technologies. I am particularly interested in meta-cognitive strategies and their role in learning and creativity.
