I study how and why non-computing students learn programming, in order to understand ways in which we might teach for alternative endpoints in computing education. My research has involved investigating practices in K-12 computing teacher professional development and interviewing computing and non-computing students in general education computing courses. My research interests are broadly in computing education, teaching and learning, and qualitative research.
I am a PhD student in Computer Science & Engineering at the University of Michigan, advised by Dr. Mark Guzdial. I earned my BS in Computer Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign in 2020, where I worked primarily with Dr. Wade Fagen-Ulmschneider in the d7 group. My undergraduate thesis explored methods for making engineering academic program plans more accessible and understandable for students who are considering multiple majors or pathways.
