Academic Interests

My research focuses on collaborative learning processes in a variety of contexts and disciplines including museums, classrooms, and professional design settings, with specialized interest in the relationship face-to-face collaboration and mediating technologies. I am currently researching processes of embodied meaning making and imagination across multiple disciplinary settings and large-scale research projects. I am participating in the ReleQuant research project in the Department of Physics to design and research digital tools for learning modern physics. I am also participating in the Mediascapes research project in the Department of Education to study digital practices of architects and the implications for curation and participation and the National Museum of Architecture.
