Since 2009, I have been a member of the ScratchEd Team, working to support educators using Scratch. Originally from the Los Angeles area, I received my bachelor's degree in French Literature from the University of California in San Diego and a master's degree in educational technology from Harvard. Some interests of mine are: experiential learning, creative storytelling, and critical documentation. When I'm not working on ScratchEd or Scratch projects, you can find me tinkering with new recipes in the kitchen, throwing pots at the ceramics studio, or at a dog park with Ben the Yorkie.

I am an Assistant Professor of Education at Harvard University, in the Graduate School of Education. My research is primarily concerned with the ways in which learning communities support computational creators -- and how technologies and environments can be designed for these learning communities. More concretely, my work focuses on young people's participation in the Scratch website and educators' experiences of working with Scratch in the classroom. As part of this work, I developed the ScratchEd online community, which was launched in August 2009. I completed my PhD at the MIT Media Lab, as a member of the Lifelong Kindergarten group, in October 2012. Before joining the Media Lab in August 2007, I explored music, computer science, mathematics, and education in my post-secondary studies. I have a BSc in computer science and mathematics, a BEd in the same areas, and an MA in curriculum studies - all from the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada.
