“I grew up in London, England and spent my undergraduate studies between Imperial College London and Rice University. After developing a passion for the field of education, I joined the Teach For America corps and worked as a math teacher and Dean of Academics, helping to found a high school in Houston, Texas. I am currently focused on research in the learning sciences and educational innovation, with a particular focus on emerging technologies, learning analytics and educational data mining. In my free time, you can usually find me reading, taking my dog on meandering walks, or playing strategy games such as poker and chess.”
