About

I am a PhD candidate in Learning Sciences at Vanderbilt University. Currently located in Seattle, I plan to finish my dissertation here, looking at the kinds of challenges that emerge when youth encounter conflicting epistemic commitments while crossing boundaries between different knowledge communities.
