I’m a geospatial information scientist with special interests in immersive technologies and their application in spatial cognition, environmental data visualization, and place-based education. My dissertation research focuses on spatial learning in virtual environments. One area of my work investigates how human cognitive abilities interact with various virtual reality settings. The second area of my work centers on novel scale manipulations and their impacts on learning, memory, and performance in large-scale environmental space.  More information about my research can be found on the Research page. For a full list of publications, please see my Curriculum Vitae.

I like programming. I have been working with researchers and educators from different fields to design and implement a colorful array of virtual experiences, with the overall goal of transforming place-based learning through immersive technologies.
