RESEARCH

My primary research focus is on higher level reasoning in complex tasks in STEM domains. Specifically, I investigate how classroom activities and learning environments affect conceptual understanding in engineering and science. My second research focus in on verbal interactions in collaborative learning settings. I am particularly interested in dialogue patterns that can enhance productive discussion and co-construction of knowledge. My third research focus is on metacognition and its implications for learning. I am exploring methods to enhance student reflection-teacher feedback cycle in blended learning environments.
