Tell us a bit about yourself

I'm always interested in applying scientific research to improve ed-tech products, and partnering with people to do research that improves student learning. I'm a technology and internet enthusiast, and believe in reading and learning as deeply and broadly as possible.My website is

What is your role or interest in education technology?

There are literally hundreds of scientific papers and educational programs which provide insights into how learning can be improved, at times producing large benefits with minimal changes to content and interface, and it is rare that an online program coordinates all of them to produce its maximum learning benefits. I am interested in examining or developing educational programs by systematically improving them using extant principles and theories – which in turn serves as research that refines these proposals. I’m open to a range of topics, but to do this effectively I think the key features are: (1) Whether the learning takes place in a self-contained and automated module. E.g. A web-based course like OLI statistics. (2) The possibility to make small changes to content or interface and use random assignment or A/B testing to evaluate these effects (I have programming experience). (3) Whether learning measures can be collected as part of the program (allowing evaluation).

Do you currently subscribe EdSurge's newsletters for the latest news and info on the edtech industry?

Of course!
