I apply my teaching experience, PhD in biology, and learning sciences research knowledge to transform the biology curriculum at MIT in collaboration with the faculty through digital learning projects. The projects include blended learning experiences for MIT students and MOOCs that are shared with the world. I take a learning engineering approach to the design process to focus on the learners and make data-informed decisions. I manage the development and execution of the projects and promote the implementation of evidence-based teaching. The group also studies learner engagement and course design. I enjoy training and mentoring other teaching staff, postdocs, graduate students, and undergraduates in this discipline. The group created and managed two of ClassCentral's top 100 online courses of all time. Prior to returning to MIT, I taught at Harvard University.
