Who are the PSLC Postdocs?

Name University/Department Working With PSLC Thrust and Projects E-mail Research Interests
Suzanne Adlof Pitt/?  ?  ?  ?  ?
Matthew Bernacki Pitt/LRDC Tim Nokes, Vincent Aleven Metacognition and Motivation Thrust; Questionnaires My research focuses on how students learn in classroom and computer-based learning environments. Of particular interest to me are students’ self-regulated learning behaviors as well as their achievement goals, level of self-efficacy, and prior knowledge.
Fan Cao Pitt/?  ?  ?  ?  ?
Min Chi CMU/MLD  ?  ?  ?  ?
Sherice Clarke Pitt/?  ?  ?  ?  ?
John Connelly Pitt/?  ?  ?  ?  ?
Amy Crosson Pitt/LRDC  ?  ?  ?  ?
Gregory Dyke CMU/LTI Carolyn Rosé Social and Communicative Factors Thrust
9th grade Biology
Cancer support groups I am interested in the creation of tools to help humans analyse data of computer mediated collaboration (and learning). My PhD resulted in the creation of Tatiana (Trace Analysis Tool for Interaction ANAlysts), a flexible, extensible tool particularly well suited for the analysis of small group face to face and computer mediated interaction. My current work involves examining and assisting the discovery of how interaction unfolds over time.
Seiji Isotani CMU/HCII  ?  ?  ?  ?
Laura Halderman Pitt/?  ?  ?  ?  ?
Ido Roll UBC/?  ?  ?  ?  ?
Oscar Saz CMU/LTI Maxine Eskenazi Cognitive Factors (Fulbright funding) My interest is language level, especially pronunciation and phonology. For my PhD in Spain, we develop a set of multimodal tools for language training and rehabilitation of impaired children ( Here in CMU, I will work in developing tutors that prevent second language learners from making pronunciation errors which can generate a confusion in the understanding of the message by a human listener, as we have the hypothesis that not all pronunciation errors affect in the same way the communication among humans.
Stephanie Siler CMU/Psychology  ?  ?  ?  ?
Zelha Tunc-Pekkan CMU/HCII Vincent Aleven, Nikol Rummel Learning with multiple graphical representations in a complex, real-world domain: intelligent software tutors for fractions. (NSF funded project) Children's mathematical learning (more specifically construction of fraction knowledge), test and tutor development aligned with children's thinking, teacher in service.
Candace Walkington UTexas/?  ?  ?  ?  ?
Michael Yudelson CMU/HCII Phil Pavlik  ?  ? User modeling, Educational Data Mining

Meeting Notes and Schedule

Nov 29 2010

  • Prepared SWOT for AB
  • Matt will attend the Grad Student SWOT meeting on Dec 6.
  • Decided to setup a wiki page modeled on the Grad Student wiki page (Greg)
  • Matt will set up a doodle to plan next set of meetings (let him know of any conferences you are planning to attend over the summer)


What lists should I sign up for?

pslc-pier-announce -- job announcements from David Klahr mostly
pslc-post-docs -- the post doc list
pslc-members and pslc-announce -- both of these seem to be general announcements, one internal and one external?
The list for the thrust you are a member of.
Contact Joe Bodnar to be added to these.

What do the PSCL Postdocs do as an entity?

Have regular meetings (about once a month) to discuss issues relevant to our experience as Postdocs

I'm a new Postdoc. Can you give me a quick overview of PSLC?

Big question...

I'm a new Postdoc. What should I do and who should I talk to?

* Sign up for mailing lists
* Meet other people in your thrust
* There are also monthly PSLC lunches
* Read up on the projects your thrust is involved in
* Check out the other thrusts
