beach_webHi there! I’m a doctoral student in the Educational Communication and Technology program at New York University, where I’m a part of the Consortium for Research and Evaluation of Advanced Technologies in Education. I’m also affiliated with the NYU-based Games for Learning Institute, a multi-university research consortium that is developing STEM games for middle school students.

Previously, I was senior manager of research and communications at the Joan Ganz Cooney Center at Sesame Workshop. I was also a researcher at the Center for Children & Technology, part of the Education Development Center. Prior to my career in the education field, I helped produce science documentaries for clients such as WGBH/Boston and Discovery Communications. From 2001-2004, I lived abroad in Beijing, where I created an English instructional series for Beijing TV and served as the Arts & Entertainment Editor for that’s Beijing magazine. I have a B.A. in Molecular and Cell Biology from UC Berkeley and an M.S. in Science Journalism from Boston University.

I’m using this blog to help me organize my readings and thoughts. Please feel free to leave a comment!

  1. Hi, Dixie. I’m a science writer currently based in Brooklyn, and your work sounds very cool. Would you be willing to meet with me so I can learn how you got where you are now?
