Computer Science

My research goals are to explore how computer science learning can support other kinds of learning, especially in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) courses. My CV lists all public talks, publications, and conference proceedings.

Computational Thinking

One way to study how computing impacts learning in science is to use a computational thinking framework. You can read my current thinking on what that means here.

Since mid-2020, I have created various physics and astronomy coding projects using Google Colab for Python and the STEMcoding platform using p5js. Most of the Python projects are available as a GitHub repository.
