I’m a first year Ph.D. student at Stanford University in the Graduate School of Education. My research interests include computational social science, argumentation, assessments and quantitative methods all applied to the field of physics education. My personal interests revolve around problem solving, especially when applied to motorcycle repair, board gaming and recreational mathematics.
Before that, I was a physics teacher in the Philadelphia School District for eight years. Seven of those eight years were spent at one school, The Academy at Palumbo, where I also coached First FTC Robotics and forensics (speech and debate), built a MakerSpace, fixed things, taught various levels of physics (and occasionally math) and drank about a pot of coffee every day.
