Expertise:

My work focuses on how students make sense of shifting epistemic expectations as they cross boundaries between in-school and out-of-school STEM learning experiences. My most recent publications have focused on math and science. Work in progress also includes engineering and computer science.

Degrees:

I hold an MEd and a PhD in Learning Sciences from Vanderbilt University, as well as a BA in Russian from Reed College.
