Collected randomness

Research Interests:

I am interested in the ways that different people interact with their technological and educational environment. Specifically, I investigate the role of users' individual differences, especially spatial ability differences, in performance with computer interfaces. I also study the composition and measurement of language aptitude and its role in performance.

I am a member of the Laboratory for Automation Psychology and Decision Processes at the University of Maryland in College Park, and a graduate researcher at the Center for Advanced Study of Language.
