Jamie Gorson

Ph.D. Student in Computer Science and Learning Sciences

I am a PhD student in Computer Science and Learning Sciences, a joint Ph.D. program at Northwestern University. My interest is in designing and building technology to increase teacher's access to hands-on and project-based learning. I am currently working in the Delta Lab with Professor Matthew Easterday and in the TIDAL Lab with Professor Michael Horn. I received my B.S. from Olin College of Engineering in Electrical and Computer Engineering with a concentration in Innovative Education. My research is funded by the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship Program in the field of STEM Ed.
