I'm a 4th year PhD candidate in Learning Sciences in the College of Education at the University of Washington. I study video games and learning and I'm particularly interested in the complexities of design strategies for representing learning content in video game play. I work at the LIFE center where we collaborate with the Center for Games Science in studying math and science games for learning. I'm part of the Keywords for Video Game Studies group supported by The Simpson Center for the Humanities (UW). My professional background is in instructional design, specifically strategies for incorporating new technologies and designing games for learning.
