I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Pennsylvania, working within the Penn Center for Learning Analytics (PCLA). I completed my PhD at the University of Colorado under the supervision of Sidney D'Mello
My research is focused on how AI techniques can be used to improve educational software and experiences, with a special focus the fair treatment of students who are members of underrepresented groups
How can AI techniques be used to create a dynamic and improved educational experience? Particularly when using educational technology
How can we use computers to automatically model and respond to complex human emotions?
How can educational technologies improve equity in education? Special focus on fairness in machine learning techniques.
How can we use techniques that break the classical computing paradigm to better model learning experiences.
