My primary research focus is on students' learning of complex tasks and concepts in STEM domains. Specifically, I investigate how classroom activities and learning environments affect engagement and learning in engineering and science domains. My second research focus in on verbal interactions in collaborative learning settings. I am particularly interested in dialogue patterns and co-construction of knowledge in small groups and teams. My third research focus is on metacognition and its implications for learning. I am exploring methods to enhance student reflection-instructor feedback cycle in technology enhanced learning environments.
