Hello all, in the Fall of 2014 I will begin to serve as an Assistant Professor of Learning Analytics within the Department of Teaching & Learning at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

Although my research has always focused on how socioemotional development is influenced by technology, I have recently begun to shift away from laboratory-based work and into the classroom. Specifically, I am interested in how learner characteristics influence social interaction, and whether (and in some cases how) contemporary technologies can be used to assess and shape socioemotional learning. 

I am a member of the American Educational Research Association (AERA) and the American Psychological Association (APA). I sit on the editorial boards of Intervention in School and Clinic and International Journal of Games and Computer-Mediated Simulations, and review for such journals as Computers in Human Behavior and Interacting with Computers.
