The Science of Learning Institute includes a broad network of scientists, practitioners, and educators with expertise spanning basic and applied sciences.
I am interested in heuristics of success for online communities of interest, online learning communities, and best practices for supporting distance learning.
I conduct research in surgical education with particular interest in simulation training and curricula development.
I am interested in motor learning and the effects of theta phase specific stimulation during working memory tasks on memory encoding.
I am interested in the use of various neuroimaging modalities to better understand cognitive and functional outcomes in various neurological conditions, such as “learning to ignore.”
I am interested in machine learning, speech recognition, and statistical signal processing.
I am interested in deciphering the changes in synaptic function that underlie learning and memory.
I am interested in the development of magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy techniques for evaluating diseases of the human central nervous system.
I am interested in multimodal machine learning, technology-enhanced learning, and virtual reality with applications in education and training.
I am interested in motor learning in adults and children who have damage or disease of the central nervous system.
I am interested in brain development and plasticity, cognitive neuroscience, and conceptual development.
