Principle Investigator & Director
Carrie DEMMANS EPP (BSc, MSc, PhD)
She is interested in the use of technology for supporting learning and assessment. She develops, deploys, and studies educational technologies for language learning and other domains. A large portion of her work has involved the development and visualization of models and analytics. These models and analytics are then used to support the decision making of human and computational agents. To build these systems, she has employed techniques from the areas of software engineering, human-computer interaction, artificial intelligence, and psychology.
