I am currently a postdoctoral research investigator in the School of Information and Academic Innovation at the University of Michigan. I have been working with Chris Brooks in the Educational Technology Collective and Tim McKay in Academic Innovation .
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, group interaction, and learning analytics. 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 environments including small group computer-mediated collaborative learning environments, collaborative design networks, 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.
