I am a postdoctoral research investigator in the School of Information and Academic Innovation at the University of Michigan. I completed my PhD at the Institute for Intelligent Systems in the University of Memphis under the advisement of Professor Arthur Graesser.
My primary interests are in cognitive psychology, discourse processing and learning sciences. In general, my research focuses on using language and discourse to uncover the dynamics of socially significant, cognitive, and affective processes. I am currently applying computational techniques to model discourse and social dynamics in a variety of learning environments including intelligent tutoring systems (ITSs), small group computer-mediated collaborative learning environments, and massive open online courses (MOOCs).
My research has also extended beyond the educational and learning sciences spaces and highlighted the practical applications of computational discourse science in the clinical, political and social sciences areas.
