I received my PhD in Cognitive Science in Education (Learning Sciences) from Columbia University

My research concentration was in Learning Analytics and Intelligent Technologies, and their applications in predicting long-term student outcomes.

I was also a member of the university's Educational Data Mining Lab under the supervision of
Prof. Ryan S. Baker (also my doctoral advisor, he has since moved to UPenn).

I am now a Senior Research Scientist at ACT, Inc.
