A little bit about my interests.
A recent talk on data mining.
I am well known for the
ASSISTment System I created.
about it here. I am an expert in Artificial Intelligence, Machine
Learning, Intelligent Tutoring Systems, Educational Data Mining, and the
Cognitive Science of Mathematical Cognition (i.e., how do people learn math
topics)). I co-direct the new PhD + Masters
Programs in Learning
Sciences and Technologies.
I am interested in machine
learning, Bayesian networks, and data mining. In fact,
my student won a $3,000
dollar KDD Cup
prize for our data mining work. For graduate students from
outside the US looking at this page, I suggest you read some of the work
Zach and I have done. He is a good model of a successful PhD
Those interested less in machine
learning, but more in have a practical impact in education, should look
the dissertation work of Leena
. She makes use of ASSISTments to create experiments.
Those more interested in software
engineering should also be interested in working with me. Come
help us build innovative software that has a real impact on student
learning. See ASSISTments for an example.
calendar is here for all to see when I am free (private meeting will by
