I am a second year PhD student at the University of Pennsylvania, under the Teaching, Learning, and Teacher Education program. I am a member of the Penn Center for Learning Analytics (PCLA).


I am currently involved in research on the implementation of adaptive learning in MOOCs through the integration of the Army Research Lab's Generalized Intelligent Framework for Tutoring (GIFT), Carnegie Mellon University's Cognitive Tutor Authoring Tools (CTAT), and edX. We are conducting this in 2018 through Penn's second installment of Big Data and Education, which ended on May 27, 2018.

Under the guidance of Prof. Ryan Baker, I developed the first version of the MOOC Replication Framework (MORF). We developed MORF to enable the investigation of research questions on MOOCs across multiple data sets. MORF tests whether previously published findings on engagement and completion in MOOCs replicate to new data sets.

Our collaborators at the University of Michigan have since released a second version of MORF, which is able to conduct more complex prediction and replication analyses across multiple MOOC data sets. 


Currently, MORF has access to over 209 MOOC data sets between the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Michigan. To learn more about MORF and to conduct your own analyses on the MORF platform, please visit our MORF website.


We are actively seeking collaborations with researchers who are interested in either

  1. Integrating their own data sets into MORF: this process allows for the testing of whether previously published findings replicate to their data set; or

  2. Integrating new methodologies and findings into MORF as new research is conducted: this process allows for the testing of whether or not their findings replicate, and in what kinds of courses they do or don't.
