I'm a Masters student at UC Berkeley studying Computer Science with a focus on online education, advised by Professors Dan Garcia and Armando Fox. My current work involves investigating student metacognition in online courses through an adaptive exercise system that customizes the progression of question topics to each student.
While at UC Berkeley I have also been a teaching assistant for CS10: The Beauty and Joy of Computing and co-taught CS194-23: The Art and Science of Digital Photography.
I graduated in 2006 with a B.S. degree in Biology from MIT with interests in computational biology, computer science, and photography. I worked for MIT's Information Systems & Technology and was on the staff of the Image and Meaning workshop series, part of the Envisioning Science Program at Harvard's Initiative of Innovative Computing.
Since 2007, I have taught numerous courses at Harvard Extension and UC Berkeley.
Outside of work and school, I enjoy photography and climbing.
