Alec Bowen is an undergraduate in Chemical Engineering at Oregon State University and expects to receive his B.S. in June 2014. His research focuses on engineering education, particularly in the development and utilization of educational simulations and student personal epistemology.
Daniel Reid is a graduate student in the Institute for Molecular Engineering at the University of Chicago. He received his B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Oregon State University where he worked for Dr. Milo Koretsky developing the Interactive Virtual Laboratories. He is currently doing computational chemistry work under Juan de Pablo.
Milo Koretsky is a Professor of Chemical Engineering at Oregon State University. He received his B.S. and M.S. degrees from UC San Diego and his Ph.D. from UC Berkeley, all in Chemical Engineering. He currently has research activity in areas related engineering education and is interested in integrating technology into effective educational practices and in promoting the use of higher-level cognitive skills in engineering problem solving. His research interests particularly focus on what prevents students from being able to integrate and extend the knowledge developed in specific courses in the core curriculum to the more complex, authentic problems and projects they face as professionals. Dr. Koretsky is one of the founding members of the Center for Lifelong STEM Education Research at OSU.
