My research focuses on the educational applications of human learning, memory, and metacognition. I am interested in how instructors can apply empirically supported principles to design educational environments that optimize learning, as well as how students can improve their own understanding and application of effective learning strategies. I am particularly interested in these questions in the context of multimedia learning—i.e., learning from computer-based animations or videos accompanied by written or spoken text. My goal in the classroom is for students to gain knowledge and research skills that they can then use to be successful in their chosen professions.
I enjoy baking, reading, and (sometimes) running. My husband, Michael, is a software engineer.
