I am an Assistant Professor of Learning Analytics in the Department of Teaching & Learning at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. As an educational psychologist specializing in ecological models of learning and behavior, my research examines the intersection of developmental and social psychology in educational settings. I am particularly interested in exploring how human-computer interaction influences socioemotional learning, and how these factors can be applied to psychoeducational assessment and intervention development. Currently my work intertwines these interests within the context of exploring how social skills and aggression emerge within technology-based environments.
I am a member of the American Educational Research Association (AERA), American Psychological Association (APA) and Western Psychological Association (WPA). I sit on the editorial board of Intervention in School and Clinic and review for such journals as Computers in Human Behavior and Interacting with Computers.
