I have more than 10 years of experience in the field of Education, with interests that focuses on Creativity, Technology, and Learning. My dissertation research explores how collaborative design-based tasks can facilitate the emergence of creativity within complex systems. By fostering curiosity, play, and tinkering, my work seeks to develop a better understanding of how to support people as they develop agency, identity, and ownership throughout their life-long learning.
Outside of my research, I am a passionate about life and enjoy cycling, coding/programming, performing music, reading philosophy, repairing pinball machines, travelling the world, and playing with my dog.
