Biography

I am a Lecturer in the Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics, and Statistics department at the University of British Columbia Okanagan. I received my PhD in Physics from the Reinsberg lab in 2019 where among other things, I developed a new MRI technique to assess the oxygenation status of tumours using independent component analysis (ICA). During my PhD I got interested in data science, learning analytics, and science communication and that led me to learn more about statistical techniques such as ICA, and data visualization using interactive dashboards.

A learning method that de-emphasizes didactic teaching and actively engages students with material via problem solving, case studies, role plays and other methods.

Learning Analytics

Extracting trends from learner data using analytical tools to improve learning.

Equity in STEM

Developing and implementing methods of inclusive teaching to reduce systemic inequities in STEM education.

Visualizations

Representing data using effective graphs, plots, and other special visualizations.
