I am a Lecturer of Computer Science at the Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering, University of Florida. My research focuses on Computer Science Education and Learning Analytics where I study the effectiveness of different learning approaches on students' learning outcomes and performance in introductory programming courses.


My Masters thesis work was on cultivating computational reasoning skills and mental simulation ability in K-12 students using Microsoft's Kodu Game Lab. I was fortunate to be advised by Christina Gardner-McCune (UF) and David Touretzky (CMU).
