“Meliora” is the University of Rochester’s motto. It means ever better.

I am an assistant professor at the Warner School of Education & Human Development, at the University of Rochester. My work focuses on motivation and emotion in learning, particularly for students with learning disabilities. Learn more about me, current projects, and the students in our research group.
