Biography

As senior research manager I manage the research side of the HarvardX organization, including collaboration with the HarvardX instructional development team on the integration of research into course and module development; serve as primary advocate for HarvardX research needs in our partnerships and collaborations across the institution and beyond, and oversee a team of post doctoral researchers working in the MOOC and learning science space.

Prior to Harvard I was the Research Director at edX where I managed sponsored research and proof-of-concept projects. My portfolio included managing the pilot of MOOC courses being adapted for on-campus learning in k-12, The California State University System and Massachusetts Community Colleges. I also facilitated communities of practice for the instructional design and teaching teams and educational researchers within the edX Consortium.

I have worked in higher education IT and online program development for 15 years leading academic technology and online learning teams. I am the current chair of the Educause Advisory Committee for Teaching and Learning (ACTL) and I am a Commissioner on the Education Attainment and Innovation Task force for the American Council on Education (ACE).
