I am a PhD student in the Human Computer Interaction Institute at Carnegie Mellon University where I am advised by Ken Koedinger and Steven Dow.

Before coming to CMU, I was a graduate student in Computer Science at Arizona State University where I worked with Pat Langley and Jami Shah.

I also completed my bachelor degree in Computer Science and Mathematics at the University of Wyoming where I did work with Ruben Gamboa and Siguna Mueller

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.
