My research focuses on the professional development of instructional designers and design conjecture. My work includes exploring contextual and environmental factors that influence design, designer decision-making processes, and the use of cognitive apprenticeships to train in situated contexts.

I was recently named a UGA Service-Learning Fellow for my engagement with graduate students in providing performance evaluations for nonprofit organizations locally and beyond.​ I have also been awarded Design and Development Division Outstanding Journal Article, and I received the Presidential Award from UGA's Association for Educational Communications & Technology in 2016 and 2019.
