Biography

As associate director of the LINK Research Lab, I administratively support research projects, manage our online course development (MOOCs), supervise outreach efforts, and facilitate UTAs professional learning community (PLC) program. Prior to my current position, I worked as the research coordinator for LINK, serving as the project manager for learning innovation grants (such as dLRN), and coordinator for lab events and research efforts. Before my time in LINK, I worked as an instructional designer in the Center for Distance Education at UT Arlington. I have experience teaching in both secondary and higher education, and am currently working on my Educational Leadership doctorate at UT Arlington. I also earned my Master of Arts from UT Arlington in History. My current research focuses on learning analytics, multiple-pathways learning, online course design frameworks, distributed networks for research and practice, the impact of technology in labor market trends, and the history of Colonial Louisiana.
