Bio: I will be starting in the Fall 2018 as an Assistant Professor at North Carolina State University as a member of the Center for Educational Informatics. My research goal is to reimagine educational programming environments as adaptive, data-driven systems that support students automatically as they pursue learning goals that are meaningful to them. I believe that every student should be able to learn computing with the support they need to be successful, working on projects that suit their values and interests. My research sits at the intersection of Computing Education Research (CER), Educational Data Mining (EDM) and Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITS). My current research focuses on:
- Developing and evaluating iSnap, the first block-based programming environment to offer data-driven hints.
- Designing algorithms to automatically generate programming hints and feedback using student data.
- Investigating how students seek and use human and automated help when programming.
- Comparing the effectiveness of block-based, frame-based and textual programming interfaces for novice programmers.
