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 student personal epistemology and the development and utilization of educational simulations.
Devlin Montfort is an Assistant Professor in the School of Chemical, Biological, Environmental Engineering at Oregon State University. His research interests include the theoretical, methodological, and philosophical peculiarities of conceptual change and personal epistemology in the context of engineering education and practice. He holds a Ph.D. in Civil Engineering from Washington State University.
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.
