As a learning scientist, I study learners engagement and design learning environments with tools like technologies, games, and hands-on artifacts. In my interdisciplinary research, I focus on the intersection of learning sciences, technologies and digital media, design-based methods, and critical STEM (ethics, equity, and societial aspects of engagement with STEM). Most recently I have been studying co-design processes towards equity in Artificial Intelligence Education.
I am a Research Associate in learning sciences, co-design metholdogy, AI technology literacies, and equity in NSF National AI Institute for Student-AI Teaming at CU Boulder Institute of Cognitive Science. Most recently, I have been working on participatory and co-design based metholdogies to study and implement justice oriented AI-literacies units with youth and teachers in classrooms and out of school workshops. I am also examining collaborative learning processes during learners-teachers interactions in the co-design and implementation phases.
I completed my PhD in Learning, Literacies, and Technologies at Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College, Arizona State University in 2021 and my master's degree at ASU MLFTC in Educational Technology. I was a Fulbright Scholar at ASU (2015-2017) and fellow of the Interdisiciplinary Enrichment Fellowship (2017-2018). In ASU, I worked at Center for Science and the Imagination. I earned my bachelor's degree at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in Business Admininstration and Education in 2014.
